Issue:
EPIC is not recognizing a valid scratch is on the drive.  What should I do or check in my configuration?
 
Environment:
Running EPIC with an EMC DLM.
Resolution:
Define drives to the ERD using the TSIDSMNT ADD UCB= command. After updating the ERD, re-IPL and try the job again.


 
Additional Information:
If an ERD is defined, then all tape drives must be defined to the ERD.
