Question: 

After applying VM:Spool Recommended Service RS1510 that is available in PTF RO85598, VM:Spool fails to initialize with the following message:

VMLCFG164E Required PRODUCT record missing from VMSPOOL CONFIG file.                           

What PRODUCT record is it expecting?

 

 

Environment:  

Currently we have the following two PRODUCT records in our VMSPOOL CONFIG file:

 

PRODUCT VMOPERATOR operator

 

PRODUCT VMSISERV VMANAGER

 

Answer: 

This change was introduced with PTF RO63233 which is part of the RS1510 collection.

 

VM:Spool does not have a documented and supported method of configuring the product to use a tape management system other than CA VM:Tape or CA VM:Spool to manage the tapes used for spool file backups.   The solution for this problem, PTF RO63233, adds a new keyword, MOUNTEXT,  to the TAPEPOOL record in the VMSPOOL CONFIG file.   PTF RI63292 is the associated Product Documentation Change that describes the new keyword.  

With this update, came a change  to VM:Spool's behavior and checking for a PRODUCT VMTAPE configuration file record. 

Add a PRODUCT VMTAPE configuration file record.  

 

Additional Information:

PTF RI63292 is the associated Product Documentation Change that describes this change and new keyword.
