CA EPIC Fastcat VSE CA EPIC for z/VSE

Issue/Introduction

When trying to run COPY/EXPORT function using a CA EPIC controlled tape and the LIBSERV COPYEX function:
 
// LIBSERV COPYEX,VOL=643894,LIB=ROBOTAPE

The command fails with message:

LBSERV ERROR, FUNCTION=COPYEX, RET.CODE=08, REASON=3020

Environment

  • z/VSE 5.1
  • EPIC 5.2

Resolution

I consulted with Level 2 and was advised that:
  • The LIBSERV COPYEX command was not handled by CA EPIC as EPIC does not have general support for LIBSERV.
  • The RET.CODE=08, REASON=3020 message indicates an 'Invalid Library Name'.
  • A separate job could be tried with LIBSERV commands.
  • As this is an IBM macro, Level 2 felt that IBM should be consulted on this.
