VM:Tape for z/VM

Issue/Introduction

How do you solve an AUDIT disk full condition?


Environment

Release : 2.0

Component : CA VM:Tape for zVM

Resolution

Use VM:Tape's VMTBKP utility to backup your TMC and Audit.


Use the VMTBKP utility to back up the TMC and reinitialize the Audit file. Backing up the TMC provides protection against loss of TMC data if there are DASD hardware failures. Reinitializing the Audit file prevents the Audit file minidisk from filling.

A VMTBACK EXEC to invoke the VMTBKP utility is provided as a sample on the distribution media. Modify this EXEC according to your needs and train the operations staff to use it.

Additional Information

VMTBKP is documented in the VMTAPE Administrator's guide that can be accessed at:
