Transferring old IDMSBCF BACKUPs to CA-VTAPE

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Feb 6, 2007
Our client is moving to re-route all or most of the physical tapes
currently being written to use CA-VTAPE instead. Part of this process is
to load as many of the existing physical tapes into CA-VTAPE as possible.
To do this, the client has a product called TAPECOPY sold by a vendor
called OpenTech. The question has been asked as to whether the tapes
written using the BACKUP command in IDMSBCF can be loaded using this
technology. Since I believe that BACKUP writes a physical sequential file
onto a standard lableled tape, I don't see why there could be a problem but
the backups in question are used for Disaster Recovery so I'd like to be
sure.

I opened an issue with CA and Cal Domingue said: ""we have no reported
problems with clients keeping backups on virtual tapes. We don't have
anything that I can find specifically on the product CA-VTAPE, but we do
have lots of folks using virtual tape with no problem. We also have nothing
reported for OpenTech or TapeCopy. If this product makes an exact copy of
the file onto virtual tape, it shouldn't be any problem...... You might
also want to check the IDMS listServ to see if other clients have used this
product, that we might not be aware of.

So here I am - checking with IDMS-L.

Feedback?

DCMT TEST LRBK ?
"Release 16 snuck a few new DCMTs into the CTAB, not at the end, but in
the middle. N097 is TEST LRBK, but I cannot find any reference in the
SYSTEM TASKS manual, nor anywhere else. The only references to LRBK at
all are in relation to the ECB and an unrecovered transaction.

Does anybody know what this MT command use is?

Re: 500 error on signing in to support connect?
"Hi Chris,

I don't geet and have not seen it. What version of java are you running?
I am running java 2 runtime environment
SE v1.4.2_12 and J2SE 5.0 update 9. From a goggle search:

public class NullPointerException
extends RuntimeException
Thrown when an application attempts to use null in a case where an
object is required. These include:

Calling the instance method of a null object.
Accessing or modifying the field of a null object.
Taking the length of null as if it were an array.
Accessing or modifying the slots of null as if it were an array.
Throwing null as if it were a Throwable value.
Applications should throw instances of this class to indicate other
illegal uses of the null object.

Don't really know what this means so.....
