Hi,

If you want to see the information (By information I mean dataset information not the data!),
Go to CONTROL-M/Tape -->
Give a TI command --> ENTER
Give the dataset name --> ENTER
Give an 'a' against the dataset name and ENTER.
You should get all the information about the dataset including General Information, Retention Information, and others..

Have a Good Day!

Dear Abrar,

Sorry to say that i can't understand the procedure that you explained. Please let me know where the CONTROL-M/Tape resides in TSO.

Thanks and Regards
Tanden

Hi Tanden,

Do you have anything like "ALTERNATE" or "Alternate SPF User Primary Menu" in your primary options menu? OR something like "ONLINE SERVICES". If yes you can find the CONTROL-M there.
I am not sure if your client has provided these features.

Hi Tanden,

That actually depends upon the type of panel you are using.There are some commands which will be specific for that panel only.Please try this procedure and let me know whether it works or not.

Type TSO TMSU on command line

System will ask you about the dataset name.Type the tape dataset name there and press ENTER!!

Please let me know if its working or not .Otherwise i will try to give you some other utility.

Try running a syncsort with SORT FIELDS=COPY, with input dataset as your TAPE dataset and the output as NULLFILE, also give a STOPAFT as some small number (greater than 0 icon_smile.gif) so that your job won't take more CPU time.
When the job is run, in the SORTMSG you will get the LRECL and BLKSIZE.
Though a very crude way this should suffice...

Writing 'MYTMS' before dataset name will fetch you tape information. Hope that's what you are looking for.

Hi,

I think, we can copy Tape file to DASD file by using IEBGENER and LIKE parameter.

then u can find the attributes of the tape file.
please try it out and let me know the result.

Thanks,
Mani

Try using the following steps:
1) 3.4
2) type the dataset name(which is on Tape)
3) Type "lc" on the left hand side(before the dataset name) and enter
this command give details such as the Dataset Owner, Creation Date, Expiration Date etc.

Hi All,

If we want to see the content of the TAPE dataset,give HRECALL before the particular datase.This will help to open and view the contents of the datase after the successful recall on DASD.

Please correct me if anything is wrong.

Hi,

You can use LISTC ENT(/) VOL command at the leftside of the Tape Dataset to view some basic infomation like, volume serial number, Creation Date, Referenced Date and So on.

Or Else, you can use the TSO Command, TSO DFRMM in TSO command prompt. Then enter the option 1.2 and then Enter Tape dataset name in field specified in the DFRMM panel and volume as * and Owner as *. You will be redircted to a panel when you have list of all Tape serials. From which you can view the dataset using 'S' Command or 'V' command.
But, please note that DFRMM command should be enabled in your system.

I see a whole of site specific suggestions but not much help. Talk to the storage management people, find out what type of tape management system you have and how to get information from it.

And if you do not have access to your TMS try this
Code:

//PRINTLBL EXEC PGM=ICEGENER
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN    DD DUMMY
//SYSUT1   DD DSN=whatever,DISP=SHR,
//            UNIT=unit,VOL=SER=volser,EXPDT=98000,
//            LABEL=(1,BLP),RECFM=FB,LRECL=80,BLKSIZE=80
//SYSUT2   DD SYSOUT=*,DCB=BLKSIZE=80
