Identifies the image copy data set.
Indicates that the data set is cataloged. Use this option only for an image
copy that was created as a cataloged data set. (Its volume serial is not
recorded in SYSIBM.SYSCOPY.)
RECOVER refers to the SYSIBM.SYSCOPY catalog table during execution.
If you use TOVOLUME CATALOG, the data set must be cataloged. If you
remove the data set from the catalog after creating it, you must catalog the
data set again to make it consistent with the record for this copy that
appears in SYSIBM.SYSCOPY.
Identifies the data set by an alphanumeric volume serial identifier of its
first volume. Use this option only for an image copy that was created as a
noncataloged data set. Specify the first vol-ser in the SYSCOPY record to
locate a data set that is stored on multiple tape volumes.
