Issue/Introduction

Question: 

A new IBM 3494/VTS Robot System has been implemented.

Initialization of a broad volser range under CA Dynam/T control using the DYNCAT INT Command is required.

Can you provide a JCL example or other procedure for the DYNCAT INT we have to run and the volser will be mounted automatically?

Answer: 

The easiest method to realize this automatically is in VM (CMS userID CAIMAINT).

  1. Attach a drive within the Robot as 181 to the CAIMAINT userid!

  2. Enter command: DYNAMCMS DYNCAT

  3. For example use the INT command like this (depending on your needs):

    CADC800D ENTER DYNCAT COMMAND
    INT 181 VOL=volnum NEW DEN=08E OWNER=11
    DEN is depending the drive emulation (3490E = 08E, 3590 = 08M 3590E = 08W)!

    volnum is the volser number located in one of the scratch categories in the IBM 3494/VTS Library (IBMLIB) !

    After the INT command has finished, the volser will be unloaded and a new INT command can be entered.

Additional Information:

This can also be done using an EXEC Procedure!
