Introduction:

Running a CTSSYNC utility to synchronize a scratch volume between TMC and IBM data base robot we get 

FUNCTION ---------------------- ATL ACTION ----------------------------- STATUS 
QUERY 500000 QUERY COMPLETE, VOLUME IN ROBOT 
QUERY 500000 OUT OF SYNC: TVIUSEA = P & TVILCAT = UN 

How can we correct this ? 

Instructions:

The reason of this error is displaying, is “SYNC operation failed. The ATL TCDB status x and LM status yy are different. Use IBM ISPF panels to resolve the discrepancy.” 

What we do know is that P=private, S=scratch UN=unknown. The second digit is 0=physical tape, 1=logical VTS,2=VTS logical volume being imported, and =physical CTS volume but these values  are set by IBM not CA and are in the CBRTVI macro and we can find them on the folwoing like:

You can also run CTSSYNC with two control statements if the TVIUSEA=S & TVILCAT=ERR but ONLY if CA 1 says the volumes is in SCRATCH status now.

PRIVATE,vvvvvv
