We are replacing our virtual tape hardware and need an outage window with no tape processing.
How to turn off tape backup processing temporarily?
If you do not want to use tape, use the following:
RMOPARMS: ARCHn=c/d/f/m/p - where "m" (for media) is not "T"
. If EAS is used, bring down all EAS tasks.
. If the same esoteric is going to be used (SARINIT STORGRPn), no changes.
. If another media is used, use SARPAC to move reports to new media.
For VIEW I would simply run a job like this:
//INIT EXEC PGM=SARINIT,REGION=4M
//STEPLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYSP.SARJCL.LOADLIB
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *
