Issue/Introduction


We are running procedure CATTRS  (program TLMSTRS), with "TLMS044,CHG". this step always gets a return code of 4 but I don't see any messages, warning...
Q1. Is program TLMSTRS always return code 4 ?
Q2. What is meaning of return code 4 ?

Environment

Release : 12.6 / 14.0

Component : CA TLMS Tape Management

Resolution

The reason for the return code of 4 with nothing in the TLMS041 is due to a message being suppressed within TLMS.

TLMSSWTO is the one issuing the RC4 within TLMSTRS. TLMSSWTO is used to suppress,delete a WTO/Message within TLMS. If you look at your TLMSHTAB from the TLMSSTAT, you'll see the following:

TLMSHTAB:

MSG ID. OPTION

CAT9013P NDEL

CAT4541I SUP

The CAT4541I is a message from TLMSTRS. CAT4541I WARNING***MISSING GENERATION (G0000V00).

This is one of the most suppressed message within TLMS. So what you are doing is correct. When TLMSSWTO returns to TLMSTRS, the RC is 4 since it was suppressed.
