I don't want a tape for each domain being backed up. How to stack backups?
Release : 2.8
Component : CA VM:Backup for z/VM
The FSN * is what tells HiDRO to stack the tape until it fills up. Update the CMDCTL for the job and specify FSN *.
Update the CMDCTL file for the job and specify FSN *.
To do this, logon to HiDRO where the job control files are located.
PF3 QUIT to CMS to get to the menu
PF5 Define and Change Backups
Select the job you want to work with (CMDCTL file)
Change the command so that it has FSN *
B U <UNIT> USER (<USERID> RR <PASSWD>) TO TAPE ( OTAPE FSN * PACK
Again, the FSN * is what tells Hidro to stack the tape until it fills up.
Now PF4 to generate the job.
You'll find more information in HiDRO's Command Reference, section BACKUP Command Format, that you can access at:
