CA 1 Tape Management

Issue/Introduction

We are vaulting our tapes to a vault named ABCD. Now we want to change the vault name to EFGH. I changed the vault location on the vault pattern dataset yesterday. The new tapes are being vaulted to the new vault location but we are getting a list of datasets in the TMSVLT exception report stating that it can't find the location of the tapes that are already vaulted to ABCD. Here's the exception message:

VAULT=ABCD, PATTERN 0001 DOESN'T CONTAIN VLT NAME (AND NOT REDEFINED)

Here's the old pattern:

VAULTS=ABCD

DSN=FDRABR.*.C1-,JOB=SYPDBK01

V=LIB,CR=1

V=ABCD,CR=60,EXP

 

Here's the new pattern:

VAULTS=EFGH

DSN=FDRABR.*.C1-,JOB=SYPDBK01

V=LIB,CR=1

V=SBCA,CR=60,EXP

 

Did we do this right? Was there anything that I may have missed?

Cause

Need to use REDEFINED clause in their Vault Pattern Dataset (VPDS)

Environment

Release : 14.0

Component : CA 1 Tape Management

Resolution

In the VPDS you need to specify both vaults:

VAULTS=ABCD,EFGH

then the pattern:
DSN=FDRABR.*.C1-,JOB=SYPDBK01,REDEFINED
V=LIB,CR=1
V=SBCA,CR=60,EXP

This will move your tapes from VAULT ABCD to EFGH.
The REDEFINED keyword only needs to be used 1 time.

Once tapes are moved:
Remove REDEFINED keyword and the old vault name ABCD.
