HI,

To get voulme serial of tape dataset in CA1,We log in with passwords and will give dataset name to search the volume serial of that dataset for a particular date.In SEARCH it dispaly the volume serails of tape data set for more then 1 year.So its time consuming to get the volume serial for a particular date.

So i want to develop a rexx tool which automates to get volume serial of tape dataset for a paricular date.

REXX TOOL should do the following
1.It should to log on to CA1 with password
2.It should search volume serial of the tape dataset for a particular date (here tape dataset & date are inputs given by user)

Hello and welcome to the forum,

Suggest you look at CA-EARL ( a very handy reporting tool that is delivered with CA-1).

Talk with your tape management people and there may be a similar bit of code already written.

Hi Scherrer,

I contacted tape backup management they gave PDS where reports are stored for all tape datasets along with volume serials.Now i need REXX code to pull details of volume serials when user enters dataset name along with date on which it was taken backup.

Please can you provide REXX code which does the below.

1.To create panel where user enters
a.dataset name
b.Date on which dataset was taken backup

REXX code should pull details from report dataset and should give volume serial has output.

Hello,

If you are permitted to log onto CA-1, i do not understand why you want to include rexx. . .

Who is/are the user(s)?

I do not recall the tape management system keeping track of when a file was backed up. It records when the tape was created, but not what the source was.

Hi Bubbybedi,

I work for cheap.

If you provide a sample of said report.

I can provide the ISPF panel and the Rexx code.

I work for $80 USD per hour. I will flat rate this at four hours.

I work on weekends and nights with fast turn around.

Or did you think someone would do your work for you for free?
