Issue:
We ran TMSPTRS and received an ERR02 and an ERR08
How do I correct these errors in TMSPTRS?

ERR02 VOLUME K29541 PREVVOL IS K27519 BUT NEXTVOL OF K27519 IS HEXZEROS 
ERR08 VOLUME K29541 1STVOL IS K27519 BUT 1STVOL OF K27519 IS HEXZEROS 
Resolution:
If the 2 tapes have the same DSN then you can update the the tape K27519 to have a 1STVOL of K27519 and a NEXTVOL of K29541 to correct these errors.
You can use TMSUPDTE to make these changes.

Your first volume of a set of tapes should have a VOLSEQ of 1, a 1STVOL of itself and a NEXTVOL pointing to the second volume of the set.
The second volume of a set of tapes should have a VOLSEQ of 2, a 1STVOL of the first volume in the set, a PREVVOL of the 1st volume of the set, and a NEXTVOL of the 3rd volume if there is one.
There should always be forward and backward pointers for all volumes in a set.
