Introduction:

I am using SARPAC to move tape data from one VOLSER to another. The SARPAC move went fine but when I run the SARPAC REPORT again, a reports old tape sequence number is still there.

 

When I recall the report, CA View correctly calls in the NEW VOLSER and recovers the report.

Question:

So why is the old tape sequence pointer record still showing in CA View after a successful execution of SARPAC?

Answer:

Since the report in question has been successfully SARPAC'ed to a new tape, CA View knows that it needs to get the report off of the new tape. Additionally, the reference to the report on the old tape sequence number should automatically be removed when the next standard backup cycle runs.
