When a CA VTAPE USS (NFS) recall attempt is made from one of our LPARs (Vtape RecallServer = CLIENT), we are receiving the following message:
FDR324** DDNAME=TAPE# IS MISSING OR IN ERROR REASON=U - OPEN
When the recall is attempted from the other LPAR (Vtape RecallServer = SERVER), the file is recalled and everything works.
The Client Vtape (RecallServer = CLIENT) in a Vtape complex does not have the USS mounts defined (or shared) between the Vtapes in the complex.
Release : 12.6
Component : CA VTAPE
The Client Vtape (RecallServer = CLIENT) in the CA Vtape Complex (that is, Vtapes sharing the same Global VCAT) needs to use the same USS definitions as used by the Server Vtape (RecallServer = SERVER), even though the Client Vtape will not actually perform the Recalls. Also, the Client Vtape should have the settings MAXDRIVES=0 and MAXUSS=0 so that it will function as a Client.
