Question:
Now that we are using CA1 we should be able to use the “Tape Management Systems” feature in CA Vantage. To start using the tape feature updates have to be made to Vantage parmlib members.

We copied the scripts from CCTUSAMP library to system scripts, defined below parms:
CTSBK1F  (VANT.CA1.CTSDSN)                         * CTSXUTIL DATA SET FOR DSN      
CTSBK1V  (VANT.CA1.CTSVOL)                         * CTSXUTIL DATA SET FOR VOLUMES  
CA1BKTMC (VANT.CA1.TMCBKUP2.G0109V00)          *TMC BACKUP DATA SET    
SMPPFX (VANTAGE.R14)    

Still we are not able to access the latest TMC backup version automatically 
We need to enable the base GDG name version 0.
How can we do this?
Answer:
The easiest way is to customize the JCL as follow:
//STEP0010 EXEC PGM=CTSXUTIL,REGION=0M,PARM='BKUPTMC'
//CTSTDB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=%%CA1BKTMC%%(0)
 
This will do the flexibility to change the (0) to (-n) for example if required on needs.
