Problem with Image Copy

Problem with Image Copy
Recently had an image copy process abend with the following error message.

TMSSMF06W END OF DSNB CHAIN REACHED


Is this due to a large number of datasets stored on a tape backup?

Can't find any information on the error message.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

i,

Use google :-)

This is from CA - Brightstor manual:

TMSSMF06W END OF DSNB CHAIN REACHED
Explanation: While trying to locate a secondary data set
that received a catalog action, the end
of the DSNB chain was encountered.
User Response: Run TMSPTRS to report on chaining errors. See
the BrightStor CA-1 Utilities

DSNBs are the things that store information about the second and
subsequent dataset on a tape in a CA-1 database. CA-1 messages codes
start with TMS.

You should talk to the people who manage your CA-1 environment.
