A series of 6 databases were merged Sat. & Sun., the MERGE and SARPAC processes completed The newly MERGED databases all have the same BACKUP cycles defined TIME=1700 and DAYS=NYYYYYY. The backup cycle did not execute on Monday at 1700. On Tuesday, at 1630, I issued the command (F VIEW,NEW) on all three instances to kick off a backup cycle and to cause the tape volumes that had been processed by SARPAC to be un-cataloged from the system catalog. Another BACKUP cycle ran at 1700, as expected, on Tuesday. None of the tape volumes that had been processed by SARPAC were un-cataloged from the system catalog, however, they have been removed from the SARTSLST report.
