Definitions
  • [
    vaddr
    | *]
    Specifies a moved read-only disk in the virtual address range 600 to 6FF (for SSI member, 1600-16FF). The default is asterisk (*), which tells
    VM:Secure
    to check all addresses in the range for minidisks to reclaim.
  • [
    ACCess
    | NOAccess]
    Checks all accessed minidisks (ACCESS) of the
    VM:Secure
    service virtual machine, or skips checks of the accessed minidisks (NOACCESS) of the
    VM:Secure
    service virtual machine. Skipping checks performs the RECLAIM command faster.

    | NOFormat]
    Indicates whether to format the minidisk after reclaiming and scratching it.

Description
The RECLAIM command allows you to reclaim DASD after the links are removed without initializing
VM:Secure
again. This command is issued automatically when
VM:Secure
is initialized if the Servant Facility is turned on.
If you are authorized (you have MOVERO authorization),
VM:Secure
lets you move minidisks even if users are linked to them read-only. To accommodate the read-only links,
VM:Secure
removes the minidisks from the directory entry but does not format them. Instead, it holds the space that the minidisks occupied until you use the RECLAIM command against them. 
VM:Secure
maintains these disks by redefining them to a
VM:Secure
directory entry in a special range. In non-SSI installations, this virtual address range is 600 to 6FF. In SSI installations, this virtual address range is 1600-16FF. You cannot reclaim this DASD until the read-only links are removed. Remove the links with either the CP DETACH or the CP LOGOFF command.
During dynamic reconfiguration using the CONFIG PRODUCT command,
VM:Secure
allocates a new COMMON disk if you have an ACCESS COMMON record. This new disk is allocated with an address in the 600-6FF range. When the RECLAIM command runs, it reclaims this COMMON disk if it is no longer current or in use by any servant process.
Do not assign minidisks to the
VM:Secure
server in the virtual address ranges from 600 to 6FF and, for SSI, 1600-16FF.
VM:Secure
will attempt to reclaim minidisks in this range, and will eventually format and scratch them.
