Error description

  • Problem diagnosis: Tape Optimizer does not copy Management
    Class from old tape data sets to new ones.
    .
    Problem resolution: Tape Optimizer will copy Management Class
    to output tape data sets from input tape data sets.
    .
    Workaround is available: In SGTODATA member, GTORVARS, locate
    the line that reads:
    <VARDEF name="MC" format="VARCHAR" maxlen="8" usage="info">
    851000</VARDEF>
    and change
    usage="info">851000</VARDEF>
    to
    usage="copy" cmd="MANAGEMENTCLASS">851000</VARDEF>
    .
    To ensure the field is copied by default, invoke the ISPF
    interface, select option 1 (Copy Request Defaults), then option
    4 (DFSMSrmm Parameters), and finally option 2 (DFSMSrmm Control
    Variables) and ensure that Varname, MC is selected with a slash
    ( / ) in the "Copy" column. The variable can also be selected or
    deselected for each copy request from option 5 (RMM Variables)
    in the Options action bar choice.
