Dynam for VSE

Issue/Introduction

We just installed a TS7700 and all is working well with DYNAM/T. In the past, it was required to run TDYNIBM after a DYNCAT scratch run to sync the catalog with the TS7700 Library. That no longer appears to be the case. When I scratch a volume in DYNAM, the volume goes from PRIVATE to SCRATCH00 in the library. This is good. I just want to confirm that TDYNIBM is no longer required.

 

 

Environment

Release : 7.1

Component : DYNAM-VM/VSE

Resolution

You do not have to run TDYNIBM after a SCRATCH process since DYNCAT updates the tape library automatically when the tape status changes.
