Getting Tape file properties using REXX..

Postby ganeshmf » Wed Apr 14, 2010 2:45 pm

Hi All,

I have a requirement to find out the expiry date for 150 tape files. Hence I decided to write a REXX code which automates the above process. Is there any way to access the expiry date of the tape file using REXX?

Regards
Ganesh

How about using the DSINFO ISPF Service, or by using IGGCSIRX (example in SYS1.SAMPLIB(IGGCSIRX).

You would probably be better off talking to your storage management people who will probably have an easily adaptable reporting tool immediately to hand.
