This is where you are wrong. It's not virtual tape device versus virtual optical. It's virtual optical versus any kind of tape LIBRARY, virtual or physical.
WRKMLBSTS will show both kinds of tape LIBRARIES. It will not show virtual tape DEVICES.
The resource name will appear WRKHDWRSC *STG
Resource Type-model
CMB04 6B25-001
DC04 6B25-001
KDVLVTL 3584-032
I got cute and went into SST and renamed the resource from TAPMLB01 to KDVLVTL.
Unlike CRTDEVTAP DEVD(MYVRTTAP) RSRCNAME(*VRT), which will automatically create the resource name, a virtual tape LIBRARY uses an existing resource. Normally hooked to a physical card, or to a physical card virtualized between multiple lpars.
