TAPEINIT

This control statement forces CA SMF Director to use a new magnetic tape volume the next time an SMF history file is created. When using a tape device, this product writes multiple files to a single tape volume until the end of the volume has been reached, unless this control statement has been issued. TAPEINIT is useful when a tape volume becomes damaged, or a new volume is desired for some other reason.

This control statement forces CA SMF Director to use a new magnetic tape volume the next time an SMF history file is created.

TAPEINIT is useful when a tape volume becomes damaged, or a new volume is desired for some other reason.
TAPEINIT must be used if you are migrating from tape to DASD history files.
If a configuration has streams defined that have active tapes being used for dumping, the TAPEINIT process forces all streams to begin using new tapes.

SUBNAME(subname|NONE)
