This course is suitable for those responsible for implementing life cycle management for tape data using DFSMSrmm (a component of z/OS DFSMS). Personnel implementing DFRMM may also find the course beneficial.

On completion you will be able to:

  • Select DFSMSrmm options suitable for your installation
  • Create a control data set and journal for DFSMSrmm
  • Define DFSMSrmm tape policies (Vital Record Specifications - VRS) for retention and movement.
  • Create procedures for: Starting DFSMSrmm, initializing tapes and performing control data set backup
  • Use the DFSMSrmm utilities to: Produce volume inventory and movement reports, perform control data set reorganization and perform control data set recovery
  • Use the SYS1.SAMPLIB samples to produce additional reports.
  • Identify access control requirements for using DFSMSrmm functions
