RE: DUPTAP learned something new



fixed

Nope, already tried.
One of the append rules is that the system names must be equal.

BRMS selects an active volume with attributes that match those in the appropriate media policy.
BRMS uses the following to check if the volume is available for appending:
- Same media class
-Same storage location
-Same expiration date
--Owned by the requesting system
- Same move policy
- Same secure attributev

No way to get BRMS to append multiple systems on to one tape, is there?
Let's say you have a fiber tape library, hooked up to a SAN switch, then to your systems. And, instead of tying up multiple tapes each night
(five) it might be able to fit them all on one or two. Yet BRMS still knows that if I want to restore the IIM file from library ERPLXF on SYSTEMX then it can still tell me to use tape such and such?

I use multiple devices for system saves.
BRMS will pick a new volume, seq 1 for SAVSYS, the rest of the system save
will append.

Be aware that you cannot "consolidate" SAVSYS tapes. they must start

After all these years I learned something new about the DUPTAP command.

There's a TOSEQNBR parm where you can say TOSEQNBR(*END) and it will
add to the end of the destination tape. I have a number of archive
tapes I decided to consolidate and that will make my life easier.

Since I learned something new, I can go home now. :)
