Tapecopy issue

Postby Srini Srini » Sun May 30, 2010 11:38 am

Hi,

I faced some issue copying a CA-Disk tape using tapecopy. I am getting the following error message while copying:

M0309 DMS VOLUME NOT LISTED IN DMS FILES DATASET

The tapes that got this error are created long ago in 2005, and have the EXPDT = PERMANENT. So, we couldn't find out which FILES dataset was used that time.

Can anyone give a suggestion please.

Thank you.

Hello and welcome to the forum,

I faced some issue copying a CA-Disk tape
What is a "CA-Disk tape"?

If this is actually a physical tape or cart, suggest you print the headers to see which is the first dataset on the volume.

Is it possible there is more than one data/physical file on the volume?
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

Hi,

Thanks for the quick response.

CA-Disk or DMS is a tool similar to DFHSM, from CA. The tape I am trying to copy is contolled by CA-DISK, similar to the HSM's ML2 or backup tape. Tapecopy allows the CA-Disk tape to be copied to another tape even though it is Externally managed(EDM) tape.

CA-DISK has a dataset called FILES dataset that maintains the migration and backup statistics, similar to the HSM control datasets.

Hope this clarifies your query.

Thank you.

Hello,

Is there a "maintenence utility" for DMS? A tool that would read the volume and re-create the missing entries in DMS?

Opening an issue with CA support could get answers more quickly. . .
Hope this helps,

Hi,
You might try running a LISTV in your various Files data set using the volser of the tape volume you are trying to copy. If you can't find the right Files data set, you could try the Rebuild utilty. It reads the the Archvol and re-creates the Dsnindex records.

Hope that helps.

Hi Marjory,

I tried LISTV for the tape with various FILES datasets, but the tape record was not found in them.
Then I went ahead and tried REBUILD for the tape dataset with the below jcl:

//STEP1 EXEC REBUILD,DSN='TAPEDSN'
//SYSIN DD *
REBUILD
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*

But I am getting a strange mount message for this job as below:

TMS008 IEF233A M 0C1F,MISING,,JOBNAME,REBUILD,TAPEDSN

It is looking for a tape MISING which doesn't exist/ not defined to CA-1.

Is the job I am using is correct?
Any suggestions please.

Thank you.
