Hi John,
Looking @ the message it is said that the tap35 not valid... What I usually
do is when this thing happen is I call IBM to replace the drive.. The drive
could be at the end of their time :-D

It happened again. Runs along fine, then aborts.

I did get a job log.

System also created QPSRVDMP.

The 3590 device is in FAILED state.

From looking at QEZDEBUG, I see from the call stack, the last three entries


From looking at QSYSOPR, there is CPI5922 Device description TAP35 is not
usable at this time. No other error message related to the drive before or
after that message.



MCH5203 Condition of source/sink object TAP35 not valid.

System (v5r4) has 246.1G and %system ASP used is 67.4779

My WAG is that the tape got full. But, unlike last week, I never saw a
message requesting a tape change. Last week, I did see that message along
with a message that tape drive needed to be cleaned - which I did last

So, any idea as to why there was no tape change message?
