TAA Tools

The Convert  ASP Attributes  command builds  an outfile of  one or  all
ASPs  (Auxiliary Storage Pools).   The  outfile created is  named ASPP.
The  outfile  may  then be  queried  for consistency  or  searching for
specific values such as the overflow recovery policy.

The model  file  is TAAASPGP  with a  format  name of  ASPR.   You  can
display the model file with DSPFMT TAAASPGP.

A typical command would be:

             CVTASPA      ASP(*ALL) OUTLIB(QTEMP)

All  ASP attributes  would  be converted  to  the ASPP  file in  QTEMP.
There would be one record for each ASP.

CVTASPA escape messages you can monitor for

        TAA9894  One or more ASPs could not be converted

Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   ASP           The  ASP number  to convert  the attributes for.   The
                 default is *ALL for all ASPs.

                 If a number is entered,  it must be a value between  1
                 and  99.    If  a   device  name  is  requested,  this
                 parameter must be blank.

   ASPDEV        The  ASP device  name to  convert the  attributes for.
                 If an  ASP number  is requested,  this parameter  must
                 be blank.

   OUTLIB        The library  in which  the ASPP  file will be  placed.
                 The  default is  *LIBL.   If  the ASPP  file  does not
                 already exist, a library must be specified.

   OUTMBR        The  member  of the  ASPP  file to  be  used.   If the
                 member does not  exist, it is  added.  The default  is

   REPLACE       A  *YES/*NO value  for  whether the  member should  be
                 cleared  before writing records into  it.  The default
                 is *YES.

                 *NO may  be  specified  to  add  records  to  existing
