Resolution

VOLSER ranges for most CATINQR commands are available in CA TLMS 14.0. The ranges are processed as if a command was issued for each VOLSER in the range. 
VOLSER ranges are only available for CATINQR in batch so that the results for each VOLSER can be displayed. 
This command has the following format: 

UPV volser[-volser] keyword=value [,keyword=value]... 

volser 
Specifies the volume serial number. 

To put a range of volumes into scratch status, please use: 

UPV D00000-D00004,SCRATCH=YES,CDS=0000
