    Unanswered: Uncatalog Virtual Tapes

    DB2 V7.1 z/OS on the MainFrame

    Our operators want to re-use a bunch of tapes that have FIC's that were run from a test system. DB2 won't let the tapes expire because (I think) they are still in SYSIBM.SYSCOPY. Is there a way to get them out of there?

    The MODIFY online utility with the RECOVERY option deletes records from the SYSIBM.SYSCOPY catalog table, related log records from the SYSIBM.SYSLGRNX directory table, and entries from the DBD. You can remove records that were written before a specific date or you can remove records of a specific age. You can delete records for an entire table space, partition, or data set.
