Chaining errors when volume count is greater than 255.

TLMS Tape Management


When running the CATVMFV we are receiving the following errors. 


The volume count for the volume series was beyond 255.


Release : 12.6 / 14.0

Component : CA TLMS Tape Management


There is a limit of 255 volumes on a single output series within TLMS. This will create a chaining error due to the number of output tapes. Once the volume series is available to be scratched, you will need to update each volume with the following command using PROC CATINQR:

UPV volser,EXPDT=60001

This will break and clear the chaining error.
