Display Path Shows VRTD Incorrectly In Maintenance Mode (Doc ID 1586185.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 17, 2016

Applies to:

Sun StorageTek Virtual Tape Control Software (VTCS) - Version 7.1 to 7.2 [Release 7.0]
Sun StorageTek Enterprise Library Software (ELS) - Version 7.1 to 7.2 [Release 7.0]
IBM z/OS on System z

Symptoms

A vRTD (virtual RTD) still displays as being in maintenance mode after being varied online.

D RTD displays RTD/paths as Offline when they are in Maintenance state because it did not test for maintenance state.

A path to an RTD was placed in maintenance state by issuing VARY PATH(ppp) MAINt.  When the path was later successfully varied online via VARY PATH(ppp) ON, output from command D PATH still showed the path as being in Maintenance state.
