EPIC for z/VSE

Issue/Introduction

In the process of converting from a Luminex virtual tape device to an Optica virtual tape device. We run zVSE 5.2/zVSE 6.2 under zVM 6.4. We share the catalog between 3 VSE systems.

Are there any fixes or special considerations required for this new device?

 

 

Environment

Release : 5.2

Optica and Lumina Virtual Tape Systems

Resolution

There are no EPIC fixes for OPTICA support. You should should direct any questions concerning the OPTICA/EPIC interface to the OPTICA folks since they provide the interface.

EPIC isn't even aware OPTICA is running on the system.

The same answer is also applied to the question for Luminex.

Additional Information

You may also want to inquire with Optica support for the proper code level on the zvt device that supports CA EPIC for VSE.
