Description:

We plan to install 3592 or 3592E tape drives soon. What densities will CA Dynam T recognize for these devices?

Solution:

CA Dynam/T supports the following values for 3592/3592E density, coded either in the CA Dynam catalog or on the TLBL statement. Densities vary depending upon buffering, data compaction and encryption.

00W for tape cartridge (3592 buffered write mode)
08W for tape cartridge (3592 data compaction buffered write)
20W for tape cartridge (3592 unbuffered write mode)
28W for tape cartridge (3592 data compaction unbuffered write)

00WE for tape cartridge (3592E buffered write mode)
08WE for tape cartridge (3592E data compaction buffered write)
20WE for tape cartridge (3592E unbuffered write mode)
28WE for tape cartridge (3592E data compaction unbuffered write)

03WE for tape cartridge (3592E encrypted buffered write mode)
0BWE for tape cartridge (3592E encrypted data compaction with buffered write)
23WE for tape cartridge (3592E encrypted unbuffered write mode)
2BWE for tape cartridge (3592E encrypted data compaction unbuffered write)
