 The creator of the VISIVTHH object is called internally as part of data collection for the VISIVTCC object.This is due to the fact that VISIVTCC needs some data obtained in VISIVTHH to work.

The creator of the VISIVTHH object works similarly to the creator of the VISIVTCC object, it obtains data using BVIR.

So, the first two tapes are mounted for the VISIVTHH creator, and only the other two tapes are used in the data collection itself for the VISIVTCC object. This is why the log shows the mounting of 4 tapes instead of the expected 2, so this behavior is correct.
