Issue/Introduction

How to configure Vantage to share the same TS7700 data set between all LPARs?

Environment

Release : 14.0

Component : CA Vantage Storage Resource Manager

Resolution

Running the DI scripts on one LPAR and sharing the data sets output to other LPARs avoid having to rerun the scripts on each LPARs.
Also the scripts must be setup on one LPAR and the parameters setup accordingly to the Configure Virtual Tape Systems.

On the other LPARs, only the parameter DIPFX must be coded and nothing else be implemented unless a backup solution is requested. By default these scripts do not load and execute. So not forget to activate and load them as to deactivate the previous delivered TS7700 scripts.

Using the same DIPFX parameter on each LPAR having a shared HLQ alias permits to get TS7700 data shared.
