Issue:

Need to restore an older archive version of a member that is stored on a tape backup dataset.

 

Environment:

Librarian 4.1 VSE

 

Resolution:

  1. Perform a selective restore of the entire member from the backup tape to a new master file.

    Figure 1

  2. Use the select command options to extract only the specific archive level needed for processing.
    -SEL modname,ARC=Lx   (or ARC=-x, or ARC=yymmddhhmmss)
    This command will select the level to be processed.
