Question:

Normally, additional FAVER2 COPYOUT tapes may be generated at STORE time, but these tapes may also be duplicated later using FAVER2 COPY.

Answer:

To generate additional COPYOUTs at STORE time, see the Faver II for z/VSE User Guide, 3-46, the section called "Multiple COPYOUTs to TAPE". FAVER2 COPYOUT tapes may also be duplicated later however, by using FAVER2 COPY;

// ASSGN SYS002,582
// TLBL COPY2,'FAVER2.BACKUP.DUP'
// ASSGN SYS001,581
// TLBL COPYIN,'FAVER2.BKUP'
// EXEC FAVER2,SIZE=AUTO
   COPY DDN(COPYIN/SYS001) -
   TO_DDN(COPY2/SYS002)
/*

 

Additional Information:

Note that the assignments for COPYIN and COPY2 may be handled by a tape management system.
