Question:
I need to create a standalone initialize tape on a tape controlled by TLMS. How do I do this? Here are the error messages I'm getting:
IEF233A M 7000,E10026,,SAINIT,STEPNAME
CAT9099I CA TLMS - ON-LINE RECORDER NOT ACTIVE
CAT9099I CA TLMS - ON-LINE RECORDER NOT ACTIVE
CAT9040I E10026 ON 7000 REJECTED BY CA TLMSĀ 
Answer:
The TLMS OSI's are installed and appears that CTS is not active. Your TLMS options are set to reject any volumes when CTS is not active. Simply start CTS and re-run your tape job.
