Question: 

 

How recover the volumes that have been created without CA1 initialized and started?

Answer: 

 

The TMSSMF utility allows recovery of tape records and DSNBs from SMF data for periods of time when CA 1 was inactive but tape processing was allowed to continue.  SMF must have been active and recording type 14 and 15 records for the period of time that CA 1 was down.  The SMF records will be used to create TMSUPDTE and TMSAGGR files to update the TMC. Documentation for this utility is provided in Informational Solution RI53024 and on the Utility Guide of CA1.
