Issue/Introduction

Sometimes we get a job submitted that starts before TMS is initialized   We have the Failsafe Usermod installed and CA 1 issues message CTS999D with either CTS997E or CTS998E. An example of the one of the messages issued (CTS998E) follows:
 
Example: CTS998E Message
 
CA TAPE MGMT INTERCEPTS ARE NOT ACTIVE!! TAPES ARE NOT PROTECTED AND TAPE ACTIVITY IS NOT BEING RECORDED! CTS999D WILL BE ISSUED FOR EACH TAPE MOUNT, REPLY U, M, OR C.
U TO USE THE TAPE WITHOUT TAPE MANAGEMENT.
C TO CANCEL THE JOB WITH A USER 222.
M TO REJECT THE TAPE.


Once TMS is up, is there a reply  we can use to let the job continue WITH (using) TMS / CA1 ?

Would a reply of 'U' just bypass TMS processing (even if TMSINIT ran)?

 

 

Environment

Release : 14.0

Component : CA 1 Tape Management

Resolution

Yes, once CA1 is active when you reply U then the TMC will be updated accordingly
