Exluding an Missing Volume of a Tape on a Compare Job

Postby Paul Reynolds » Thu Feb 28, 2008 12:02 am

Hi,
I have a Tape Dataset which consists of 134 volumes, one of which is missing or lost - eg Volume N99999. I am comparing this one Dataset against 20 others using the Fileaid Utility Program.

The compare should be an exact match but obviously wont be due to the missing records contained on the missing volume. This is fine as long as all the available records in the available volumes match against the other datasets.

Therefore my question is:
- Does anyone know of any way or statement that allows me to exclude just the missing or lost volume in my JCL, rather than specify all 133 available ones in the VOL=SER parm? Or even any other workaround??

Thanks,
Paul

Back in my VSE days, I'd just mount a tapemarked volume and respond to the error messages with an 'ignore'......
I'd assume the that can be done with MVS, but I don't know for sure.....
