  2. Receive and apply the TLMU003 usermod using the JCL located in CTAPJCL(TLMJU003).

    This updates the TLMSRACF module.
    Remember to NO-OP the following statement:

Activating the Exit via a TLMS Reinit:

  1. Stop all tape processing.
  2. Bring down CTS.
  3. Run CAS9 with the following control statement in the RIMPARM.

    PRODUCT (CA TLMS/-PRD) VERSION(TLC6) INIT(TLC6INIT) -

    If they match, the interface is working properly.
