EPIC Fastcat VSE EPIC for z/VSE

Issue/Introduction

Problem:

EP437 TAPECUU ADDRESS NOT ADDED AT IPL

Cause:

There is no dummy tape device defined to your VSE system.

Resolution:

If you use CA EPIC for z/VSE's tape management, you must define a dummy (non-existent) tape device. 

Step1 

Locate the ADD statements in your ASI procedure. 

Step 2 

Add a PUB entry for a dummy tape device. For example: 

ADD F00,3420T9 

Any valid tape device type (and mode) can be specified. The dummy tape device is only referenced by programs that do pre-open checking to determine device category (tape, disk, printer, and so on). The actual tape device is selected by CA EPIC for z/VSE based on the mode requested when a program issues an OPEN request. 

Step 3 

Write the dummy device address you used on your configuration option worksheet (the TAPCUU option).

Additional information:

For dual density tape drives, specify the highest available mode setting on the ADD statement that defines the drive.

For example: 

ADD 880:884,3420T9,D0 (6250 BPI on a 1600/6250 drive)
