Question:

How can we move 25 of 32 Tape Volumes from VAULTLOC "A" to VAULTLOC "X" ?

Answer:

for the 25 Tapes Volumes that should be moved into VAULTLOC "X" 

the following command should be executed.

Example JCL: 

// EXEC DYNCAT,SIZE=128K 

ALTER 'MONTHLY.BACKUP.D2C' VOL=D00003 VLTL=X PERM=YES 

ALTER 'MONTHLY.BACKUP.D2C' VOL=D00002 VLTL=X PERM=YES 

And so on for all the 25 Tape Volumes.

The 25 ALTER statements always need ONLY the FIRST Dataset from a Multifile Dataset chain included. 

The VOL= statements has to included the Tape Volser number which should be moved to VAULTLOC "X"
