Resolution

There are no SARPAC program or JCL parameters available, to accommodate the use of EXPDT=98000, for the tapes being created.

The SARINIT parameter EXPDT has form EXPDT=yyddd.
This value applies to tapes created by SARPAC and the View backup.

The recommendation is to set SARINIT EXPDT=99000, so that the tapes can be under catalog control.

Per the parameter format, EXPDT=98000 is an acceptable value, however the risks and ramifications on View tapes is not known.
It is best that it not be used.
