Question:
Running the Vault Managemant job I noticed an asterisk (*) in the EDM column in TMS REPORT-25 INVENTORY LIST FOR VAULT .
What does this mean?
Answer:
The asterisk (*) in the EDM column indicates, that the tape is under EDM (External Data Manager) control.
Other EARL reports like TMEJOB01 or TMEJOB02 for example have Y or N in the related column.

In order to have Y or N instead of the asterisk change the following line in EARL source TMEVLT03

from

PRINT VOLSER NDTA WRK_DSN P_EDM P_OUTDATE P_VOLSEQ P_EXPDT

to

PRINT VOLSER NDTA WRK_DSN FLAG3_EDM P_OUTDATE P_VOLSEQ P_EXPDT

which replaces field P_EDM with FLAG3_EDM, which is the original field from the EARL record and contains Y or N.
