Simple enough question.. tape to tape copy.. one(1) tape 44 files on it just need to make a backup copy.
I am going to do a simple Single volume TAPE TO TAPE COPY to create a backup tape.
The documentation indicates there are 2 methods TDYNCOPY & DYNCOPY.
Q1. Is there a difference in the way the output tape is created if DYNCOPY is used instead of TDYNCOPY?
Q2. Can I just use DYNCOPY... and specify one input and one output and use the COPY function?
Will that copy all the files from one tape to the other?
Or do I have to define every input file on the tape And specify DYNCOPY COPY, FILES=xx
Again my apologies for the basic question.
Where do you intend to run the TDYNCOPY or DYNCOPY, I assume on a VSE system?
Are you planning to copy tapes created on VM or VSE?
VM Level2 Support
These tapes are VSE files, monthly backups of prod Data…etc
Yes, you have to have a TLBL for EACH input file to be copied and specify the number of files to be copied with FILES=nnn
