Dataset Catlogd field in CA 1 Volumes Object
Article ID: 130348
CA Vantage Storage Resource Manager
In the CA 1 Volumes object field Dataset Catlogd is set to Y although the data set is no longer cataloged and scratch.
Should this not be set to N in this case?
The field "Dataset Catlogd" does not represent the current catalog status.
It just says, that the data set was cataloged.
The current catalog status is represented by field "File On OS Cat"
Following from the Help for the CA 1 Volumes object
CA 1 Volumes
If set to Y, indicates that the data set was cataloged
File On OS Cat
If set to Y, indicates that the tape is cataloged on an OS catalog.
NOTE: for the Files Object there are similar fields:
CA 1 Files
DS Was Catlogd

the dataset was created.
DS Is Catlogd
If set to Y, indicates that the dataset name is currently
cataloged in an OS catalog.
