RECONCIL Utility Appears To Be Recalling VTVs When It Is Not

(Doc ID 1586999.1)

Last updated on MARCH 20, 2017

Applies to:

Sun StorageTek Enterprise Library Software (ELS) - Version 7.0 and later
Sun StorageTek Virtual Tape Control Software (VTCS) - Version 6.2 and later
IBM z/OS on System z
This document is not a how to, nor a reference on operational matters. It simply describes what is occurring in the RECONCIL process where it may appear that VTVs are being recalled when it would be thought they should not need to be recalled.

Symptoms

VTV is already in  the VTSS or recalled from a previous MVC in the RECONCIL run and these messages are issued:

Recall from MVC 022608 to VTSS HBVTSS16
SLS6683I Bulk recall of 1 VTVs issued to MVC 022608
SLS6637I Recall from MVC 022608 completed

Why is SLS6683I issued followed by SLS337I when no VTVs were actually recalled?
