Question:

What jobs should be run in preparation for running TMSXTEND?

Environment:

CA 1 12.6 and 14.0

Answer:

TMSRINIT should be run with a PARM of STATUS to verify that you can run it with no problems.  Run TMSBLDVR on one system to identify the volume ranges in an existing TMC, validate volume range or DSNB control statements, and determine the size requirement of the new TMC.  Then just prior to running TMSXTEND run TMSCOPY to take a backup of the TMC and Audit files.  TMSCOPY MUST be done within the 3 hours prior to running TMSXTEND.
