Our View started task creates duplex tapes.
Is it possible to turn off Duplex tapes?
Release : 14.0
Component : View
The (unit2-name) sub-parameter of the SARINIT "STORGRPn" parameters (STORGRPn=.../.../nnnnn/unit1-name,unit2-name/), determines whether tape duplexing is done by View.
To stop tape duplexing, change the parameter by removing the (unit2-name).
To stop tape duplexing:
. Remove "unit2-name" in the STORGRPn parameters.
. Recycle the SARSTC task for the change(s) to take effect.
Once SARSTC is recycled with the changes, the View backups and SARPAC will no longer create a duplex tape.
When a primary tape expires, the duplex tape will expire as well, as the primary and duplex tapes are exact images.
If the duplex tapes are to be expired, it would need to be done manually with the SARDPLX tapes being uncataloged and scratched.
For additional information on the View STORGRPn parameters, please see the following area of documentation, starting with the STORGRP0 parameter specifically:
