Space announcement


This space provides the same content as before, but the organization of the home page has changed. The content is now organized based on logical branches instead of legacy book titles. We hope that the new structure will help you quickly find the content that you need.


The MAXDRIVES option controls the number of tape drives that are used during recovery. If a value for MAXDRIVES is not coded, the limit specified by the MAXDRIVE installation option is used.

For NOLOGSORT runs, BMC AMI Recover arranges the process to use no more than the MAXDRIVES value. For LOGSORT runs, if more drives are required for the MERGE processing than the MAXDRIVES value, BMC AMI Recover does not start the process. For LOGSORT runs, if MAXDRIVES is less than MAXLOGS, no more than the number of MAXDRIVES tape log data sets are opened at one time.
