Reply with quote

Hi all,

I have a tape dataset which has a retention period of 16 days. Is there any way by which we can increase the retention period to say 45 days or so.

Is there any step we can execute through a JCL to get this done.

Thanks.

Contact your site support people. Tape retention periods are typically set by site standard, and sometimes they can be changed but sometimes they cannot. It all depends on your site; we're not going to be able to tell you how to do something like this at your site.
