Attributes of a Tape dataset

 

Is it possible to find the attributes of a tape datasets
like RECFM, LRECL etc without copying it on disk?
 
Whenever I have to look at the various attributes of a tape
datasets, I first copy it to disk and then look at the attributes
of the dataset on disk.
 
If someone could tell me a command like LISTCAT or something which
would work for tape datasets directly, I will be highly obliged
 
Thanking you
Kris

Attributes of Tape dataset

Hi,

Use the command 'TI' (Tape Information). Many of the mainframe operating systems have that command enable to get the tape dataset attributes.

Most mainframe systems have a Tape Management System installed.

Suggest you talk with your tape storage management people and learn what reporting tool is available to retrieve this information. Most of these systems also have online inquiry capability (if you have the proper security permissions).

Viewing the attributes of Tape file

Hi,

You can use "MYTMS"  before the file name in the ISPF 3.4 panel to view the attributes of the Tape file

Thanks
