Tape volumes were vaulted in the past by the CA 1 Vault Management System (VMS).
In the meantime the related entries in the Vault Pattern Data Set (VPD) no longer exist.
How to return these volumes from the Vaults?
Component : CA 1 Tape Management
The following options are available to return the tape volumes:
1. Use the CHECKIN function in the CA 1 ISPF interface. Select Option 2 for UTILITIES from the CA 1 Primary options Menu:
in the UTILITIES Menu specify the volume to be returned in the VOL field and select Option 2:
2. run TMSUPDTE using
//TMSUPDTE.SYSIN DD *
REP OUTCODE=' VMS'
which performs the same updates as the ISPF CHECKIN
3. If the OUTCODE (VAULT) is still defined in the VAULTS statement in the VPD and no DSN pattern exists the tape will be returned
by the Vault Management System (VMS) when it has expired.
In TMS REPORT-24 VAULT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM *---EXCEPTIONAL CONDITIONS ENCOUNTERED DURING PROCESSING---*
this will result in message
VOL=vvvvvv DSN=data.set.name EXPIRED, HAD NO PATTERN, THUS REMOVED FROM VLT=vvvv 'ELIG FOR SCRATCH'
