Hi,
As said by one of our friend, that is installation dependent. Check with your administrator for this.
And also there is no RETPD, coming into play for tape datasets. Tape dataset is available forever. You just need to mount it whenever necessary.

hi prakash,

i hope we need to give the RETPD option when we are creating data sets on TAPE in test environment. In test environment data sets on tape will delete based on time period



correct me if i am wrong.


cheers
