Subject: TS2900 Media Library.
We got a V7R1 IBMi and it came with a TS2900 Tape autoloader device
which seems pretty cool, but this is the first time that I have to deal
with a Media Library device and I do not know how to start using it, I
already googled but I couldn't find good a good tutorial, and the lack
of IBM's info on how to use the device for the IBMi disappointed me this
I already connected the device to the IBMi, loaded the tapes, configured
the library as Random, configured the IP to access it through the web
We also had to get a new cable to interface it to the IBMi server, so
far, so good. I can see the TAPMLB03 device there and a TAP02 device as
I found that I have to get familiar with commands like WRKTAPCTG,
ADDTAPCTG, SETTAPCGY, RMVTAPCTG... does anyone has experience with this
media library devices and can tell me how to use it? The plan is to use
it for our daily backups, I loaded 9 tapes.
Any lead will be appreciated, thank you.
