I am running CA-VM:Tape v2.0 with STK 9840C tape drives under zVM 6.4.
We are migrating to IBM TS7700 VTL to eventually replace the STK 9840C.
Can I run both TS7700 and STK 9840C tape drives at the same time?
Can I specify both 'PRODUCT RMS' and 'PRODUCT HSC' in VMTAPE CONFIG?
Release : 2.0
Component : CA VM:Tape for zVM
Yes, VM:Tape can definitely run with both the RMS and HSC interfaces active and being used simultaneously.
Sometimes with these more complex environments (multiple VM:Tape "locations", etc...) it becomes necessary to implement a COMMAND and/or ALLOCATE EXIT to make sure each application's tape mounts get directed to the correct set of drives, and media.
