I should have looked there. I know better. But, failed to do that. No
joblog available, since I signed off the console without requesting the job
log. Just now did DSPLOG for the time period. Nothing really helpful.
Just odd. Message CPA4088 Load next... appears at 09:42:41 and again at
09:45:43. First message has no replay, but is followed immediately by
CPI5922 Device description is not usable....

If I >had< to guess, I would think the underlying CLP for GO SAVE might
have just not been robust enough to handle the twin conditions of dirty
drive and end of tape. I >thought< I saw a message on the console about a
failure. May have imagined that.

Well, you failed to include the joblog from after you replied to the

Subject: GO SAVE 21, second tape, dirty 3590
Sent by: "MIDRANGE-L" <midrange-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx>



Yesterday, application data on the 520 was frozen. Just read allowed.

This morning, I performed a save 21. But it may not be >quite< complete.
QSYSOPR has the following:

CPF6792 Devive TAP35 needs to be cleaned at 09:40:25

CPA4088 Load next tape volume on device TAP35 (C G) at 9:42:41

CPI5922 Device description TAP35 is not usable at this time. 09:42:41

Then, go save brought up the subsystems.

I inserted the cleaning tape and let it run. Device was in FAILED status.
Varied it OFF and back ON.

Inserted the second tape again. It is blank. Tape had been unloaded by
the system.

Not the end of the world. Next week, another full backup will be
performed. I just thought it was really odd that system requested a
second
tape and wrote nothing.

Just thought it was a bit comical - last potential save and maybe bad.
Reminds me of the expression: "Snatching defeat from the jaws of
victory.".
