Bug fix regarding FDR Innovation FATSCOPY and 14.0 upgrade

  • 1.  Bug fix regarding FDR Innovation FATSCOPY and 14.0 upgrade

    Posted 06-16-2017 05:57 PM

    FDR Innovation had changed the process in which they call the TLMS TLMSCMD module.This change created a conflict that was not discovered until the new processes of the TLMS 14.0 upgrade were implemented.

     

    An OPEN command by the main module was issued for TLMSCMD via

     

    CMNDKEY=CMNOPEN, CMNDMODE=TLMSONLN

     

    to be carried out by module #2.

    Another requested OPEN without issuing a CLOSE for the first OPEN call was being issued.

     

    They have added a CLOSE to TLMSCMD before the next open.

    The error will look like this.

     

    IEC205I TAPEOUT,WEBBT08M,MIGRATE,FILESEQ=1, COMPLETE VOLUME LIST,

    DSN=DSN.NAME,VOLS=#####,TOTALBLOCKS=####    <<<<<Output tape created, means the input tape was mounted                                                                                                 and read/copied

     

    TLMSCMND : CALL TO (INIT_SUB) FAILED

    TLMSCMND : INIT_SUB FAILURE RC IS NOT 8.  <<<<< Here, FATSCOPY at the end of copying the data from the input                                                                                  tape behind the scenes goes to the VMF record for the output tape and                                                                                  tried to update fields such a s create job, create date, and the                                                                                  keepdate/retention information to match the values from the VMF record                                                                                  of the input.  This is not working after the upgrade to 14.0 of TLMS.

     

    FDR Innovation has developed a patch P-49.3016 to fix this which is not available through CA Technologies. Please contact FDR Innovation for the patch.
