Question:

The IBM Tape Library object is displaying 32 Libraries, the majority of which are old libraries that do not exist anymore. 

 

A display of libraries from the lpar shows just 5 libraries: 

LIBRARY CLASS SYSTEM= 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 

PH1DVTS1 TAPE         + + + + . + + + + 

PH1DVTS2 TAPE         + + + + . + + + + 

PP2DVTS1 TAPE         + + + + . + + + + 

PP2DVTS2 TAPE         + + + + . + + + + 

 

PVCL01M  TAPE         + + + + . + + + + 

 

Where is vantage picking up the 32 libraries from? 

Answer:

The old entries were still defined into the MVS catalog. 

The command: listcat libraryentries(p2atl1) all , permits to locate for one library the old entries. 

Purging them from the catalog will fix the display result.
