Question:

In a system on which  CONTROL/T - RMM- ZARA  is in use, may we use Copycat Utility to copy data from tape to tape while retaining the information in the CONTROL/T - RMM - ZARA database regarding data set attributes and the creation information of the original data set?                              

Answer:

The Copycat product can only be deployed on systems where either CA-1 or TLMS run.

The volsers to be copied must be defined to either the TMC or the VMF .

It cannot operate on tapes contained in an RMM catalog or CONTROL/T catalog or ZARA catalog.
