Issue/Introduction

In migrating from one tape system to a new one, there were some CA View tapes that were not migrated and now reports cannot be retrieved from them.

Environment

Release : 14.0

Component : CA View

Resolution

The client had several problem tapes, that had not been migrated properly when they moved to new tape systems.

As the reports, despite efforts, could not be accessed, it was suggested that the client do the following:

. Run SARTSLST, to create SARBCH /DELETE transactions, to delete reports:

//XXXXXXXX JOB ...
//SARTSLST EXEC PGM=SARTSLST,PARM='VIEW_HLQ,nnnnn' <=== Modify DB name, Tape Sequence #
//STEPLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=VIEW.CVDELOAD <=== MODIFY, IF USED
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSUDUMP DD SYSOUT=*
//CTLCARDS DD DSN=XXXXXX.XXXXXX.CTLCARDS,
// DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE),
// SPACE=(TRK,(NN,NN),RLSE),
// UNIT=XXXX,VOL=SER=YYYYYY,
// DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=80,BLKSIZE=3120)
//

. Run SARBCH, with CTLCARDS as the //SYSIN input, to remove the report entries from the View index:

//XXXXXXXX JOB ...
//SARBCH EXEC PGM=SARBCH,PARM='VIEW_HLQ' <=== MODIFY DB NAME
//STEPLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=VIEW.CVDELOAD <=== MODIFY, IF USED
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//REPORT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD DISP=SHR,DSN=XXXXXX.XXXXXX.CTLCARDS
//

At the next View backup, View will expire the tape and send to MVS to scratch and uncatalog it.
