Volsers that have 5 digit tape numbers are not being updated when executing the DSEXAUPT utility. The utility runs without receiving errors and ends with RC=00 however none of the old 5 digit volsers get updated to the new 6 digit numbers.
We have tried running the utility with both 1 and with 2 blank spaces after the old volsers 5 digit tape number but receive the same results.
How can we get the utility to update the old 5 digit volser numbers to the new 6 digit numbers?
The format of the control card used by the DSEXARUT utility is as follows:
Column Length Description
1-6 6 Current 'Old" VOLSER
7 1 Filler
8-13 6 Desired 'New' VOLSER
14 1 Filler
15-21 8 Desired 'New' UNIT
When coding the OLD volser number in columns 1 through 6 of the control card, "precede" the 5 digit tape number with a "blank space" in column 1.
The utility will not work if the blank space is coded in column 6 of the control card. This is because of the way the database record that will get updated is being stored on the CA Dispatch database.
