The CHGVOLNM command allows you to change the volser of any DASD volume controlled by VM:Secure and to have it update all references to the volume by its new volser, including the reference in the physical label of the DASD.


VM:Secure changes references to the old volser in the following:

  • The VOLUME record in the DASD CONFIG file that identifies the volume to VM:Secure

  • All MDISK statements in all source directory entries that define minidisks on the target volume,
    including both minidisks VM:Secure controls and minidisks it does not control

  • Authorizations in all GRANT and WITHHOLD records to use the COMPRESS volser and MAP volser commands

  • VM:Secure control blocks, directory source files, and the object directory
