How to Remove VTCS from the HSC Configuration (Doc ID 1013445.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 16, 2016

Applies to:

Sun StorageTek Virtual Tape Control Software (VTCS) - Version 6.0 and later
Sun StorageTek Enterprise Library Software (ELS) - Version 7.0 and later
IBM z/OS on System z

Goal

What to do when removing VTCS from the configuration.
How do I prevent VTCS from initializing so that I can totally remove VTCS from my environment?
The HSC CDS no longer contains the virtual configuration but I still see SLS6650I and/or SLS6653I during initialization.
My environment has never had VTCS but after upgrading to ELS 7.x, VTCS tries to start.
