Issue: 

We have physical backups of some VSE packs and we want to restore this data to different packs.

We have a user ID called PRODVSE with minidisks as follows:

* VSE System VOLUMES

MDISK A00 3390 1 3338 PRD311 MR
MDISK 901 3390 1 3338 PRD312 MR
MDISK A01 3390 1 3338 PRD313 MR

We have a user ID called VSEDRP with minidisks as follows:

* DRP VSE System VOLUMES

MDISK A00 3390 1 3338 DRD311 MR
MDISK 901 3390 1 3338 DRD312 MR
MDISK A01 3390 1 3338 DRD313 MR

Notice that these VSE disk definitions do not include cylinder 0. Both PRD311 and DRD311 volumes are online and attached to VM.
We backup the user ID PRODVSE and now would like to restore to user ID DRPVSE using the same minidisk addresses.

How can I accomplish this with VM:Backup?

 

Solution:

If you are just dealing with physical backups of VSE minidisks that you want to restore to a different target userid/vaddr, then MDSKLIST will help you accomplish this.

In the VM:Backup System Programmer's Reference, please refer to the MDSKLIST command and the MDSKLIST option of the SUBMIT command.
