Introduction:

How we can know the auxiliary numbers free and used in the VMF file ?  

Instructions:

We have  2 way to know the number of free auxiliary:

1) running PGM=TLMSVMFU to backup of the VMF file for which get the following report:

 

Dump Volume Master Report - TLMS048 

TOTAL INPUT RECORDS READ...................615

TOTAL CONTROL RECORDS WRITTEN................1

 TOTAL SEGMENT RECORDS WRITTEN................1

TOTAL BASE RECORDS WRITTEN.................461

 TOTAL MVL RECORDS WRITTEN....................0

TOTAL MDS RECORDS WRITTEN...................12

 TOTAL AUXILIARY RECORDS WRITTEN.............90

 TOTAL MESSAGE RECORDS WRITTEN...............50

 TOTAL RECORDS WRITTEN......................615

TOTAL ORPHANED MVL RECORDS...................0

 TOTAL ORPHANED MDS RECORDS...................0

TOTAL ORPHANED VSN RECORDS...................0

TOTAL WARNING MESSAGES.......................0

 

Where

TOTAL INPUT RECORDS READ

Total records contained in the VMF backup (control, segment, base, MVL, MDS, message and auxiliary).

TOTAL MDS RECORDS WRITTEN

Number of auxiliary records used to chain multi-data set volumes.

TOTAL AUXILIARY RECORDS WRITTEN

Number of unused auxiliary records left in VMF for chaining.

TOTAL RECORDS WRITTEN

Total of all records written to the VMF (control, segment, base, MVL, MDS, message and auxiliary).

 

 

Or

 

2)we can run the TLMSVMFV to verify the VMF using the same technique used by TLMSVMFU for the VMF utilities for which we get the following report:
