Problem summary

  • APAR NUMBER:  PJ40721
    PRODUCT:  z/TPF
    FUNCTIONAL AREA:  TAPE I/O AND ERROR RECOVERY
    SHIPPED IN PUT:  10
    
    ABSTRACT:
    When there is a library state change on a TS7700 virtual tape
    library, z/TPF does not report any details beyond saying that
    the library is in an automated state.
    
    PACKAGE CONTENTS:
    Source Segments:
    (C) base/macro/tapeq.mac
    (C) base/rt/cora.asm
    (C) base/rt/cosr.asm
    
    Object Only Binaries:
    None.
    
    Configuration Independent Binaries:
    None.
    
    Support Files:
    None.
    
    OTHER BINARIES TO BUILD: YES
    (C) <sys>/load/CORA.so
    (C) <sys>/load/COSR.so
    (C) <sys>/obj/cora.o
    (C) <sys>/obj/cosr.o
    (C) os390/bin/ppcp.pds
    (C) os390/bin/sadump.obj

    (C) os390/obj/sadump.o
    (C) os390/obj/stpp.o
    
    COMMENTS:
    A TS7700 virtual library can be in an automated state but also
    have multiple conditions that need to be addressed to allow it
    to operate optimally. z/TPF is not reporting these conditions
    which prevents them from being corrected in a timely manner.
    

Problem conclusion

  • SOLUTION:
    Three new messages have been added to z/TPF that will report
    detailed status in addition to the overal state of the library.
    The messages are:
    
    CORA0001I hh.mm.ss <SS> DEVICE <addr> TAPE LIBRARY OPERATIONAL
    STATE CHANGE
     AUTOMATED MODE
    
    CORA0002W hh.mm.ss <SS> DEVICE <addr> TAPE LIBRARY OPERATIONAL
    STATE CHANGE
     PAUSED
    
    CORA0003W hh.mm.ss <SS> DEVICE <addr> TAPE LIBRARY OPERATIONAL
    STATE CHANGE
     MANUAL MODE
    
    
    These messages will include additional lines that indicate that
    one or more of the following conditions are present:
    
    DEGRADED OPERATION
    SAFETY INTERLOCK OPEN
    VISION SYSTEM NOT OPERATIONAL
    OFFLINE
    INTERVENTION REQUIRED
    LIBRARY MANAGER CHECK 1
    ALL STORAGE CELLS FULL
    OUT OF CLEANER VOLUMES
    DUAL WRITE DISABLED
    ENVIRONMENTAL ALERT
    INSUFFICIENT RESOURCES FOR MOUNTS
    LM SWITCHOVER IN PROGRESS
    OUT OF EMPTY STACKED VOLUMES
    COPY OPERATIONS DISABLED
    VTS OPERATIONS DEGRADED

    FORCED PAUSE
    GRID LINKS DEGRADED
    HOST DISABLED COPY OPERATIONS
    LIMITED CACHE FREE SPACE
    OUT OF CACHE RESOURCES
    SYNC MODE COPY COMPLETION DEFERRED
    
    The messages will all end with 'END OF MESSAGE' when the last
    condition is displayed.
    
    COREQS: NO
    None.
