Question:

Running with a shared CMS TMC using the shared TMC/Audit database, does the SCRATCH command need to be run on all shared systems?

Answer:

No. The SCRATCH command on any one system updates the TMC for all systems. However, you need to issue the REFRESH command on all other systems to update the Pointer files. For the system on which the SCRATCH command is run, a refresh will be done automatically.

 

 

Additional Information:

Refer to the VM:Tape Command Reference for more information on the SCRATCH command.
