Hi,

try LISTCAT command and look at the DEVTYPE and you will find something like this
Code:
DEVTYPE------X'78048081'


Chech with your storage group or sysprogs for a translation.

Hi,

instead of using "I", you can type LISTC ENT(/) ALL

Gerry was suggesting you to use inline 'LC' command.

Try like this:


Code:

DSLIST - Data Sets Matching RXP.BKN.NA1.DB084GMM.DAILY
Command ===>                                       

Command - Enter "/" to select action               
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
 LC        RXP.BKN.NA1.DB084GMM.DAILY         
***************************** End of Data Set list ********

Hi,

LC is site specific.

Hello,

Or, you might look in your tape management system. . .

Suggest you talk with your storage management people to see what might be available.

Seman18, you did not show us what you have typed, but I think you overlooked Gerry's suggestion, repeated here:

I misunderstand the command "LISTC ENT(/) ALL ", "/" is replace by the tape dataset name, sorry for that, I am ok now, thanks for all of you
