Description:

The PARMLIB was updated, but when I issue an SVT1 Display Parmlib console command, the old settings are displayed.

Solution:

Not all PARMLIB parameters can be dynamically changed. Only the parameters in the following sections can be changed and dynamically reloaded with a REFRESH command:

Section Name PARMLIB Member Console Command
Dynamic Options VTPARMS SVTS REFRESH=OPTIONS
Data Set Filters VTFILTR SVTS REFRESH=FILTERS
Group Definitions VTGROUP SVTS REFRESH=GROUPS
Volume Pool VTPOOLS SVTS REFRESH=POOLS
PeerToPeer Remotes VTP2PRMT SVTS REFRESH=REMOTES
USS Mount Points VUSSMNTS SVTS REFRESH=USS

Parameters in the following sections can only be activated by stopping and starting CA Vtape VTS:

Section Name PARMLIB Member
Startup Options VTPARMS
Virtual Device List VTDRIVE
PeerToPeer Options VTP2POPT
Startup Commands VTSCMDS
Shutdown Commands VTPCMDS

If you have issued the appropriate REFRESH command for the PARMLIB member changed, check the command output to make sure that the change was accepted. The command output also displays the PARMLIB data set name and the PARMILB member name that were used for the refresh. Make sure that the update was made in the active PARMILB data set and PARMLIB member.
