    Default delete volume without confirmation

    Hi guys,
    I would like to know if there is a command to delete volumes without any confirmation.

    I had created about 210 volumes on a 5.5 TB disk about a week back. SInce the performance has been very bad, i would like to use RAID-0 instead of RAID-5 and thus need to re-do the array. This requires me to delete all the storage pool volumes created on it.
    So far I have been running the following commands for each volume name:
    delete volume K:\TSMDATA\FS-POOL\CHNL2DISK1.DSK01C discarddata=yes
    delete volume K:\TSMDATA\FS-POOL\CHNL2DISK1.DSK01D discarddata=yes
    delete volume K:\TSMDATA\FS-POOL\CHNL2DISK1.DSK01E discarddata=yes
    delete volume K:\TSMDATA\FS-POOL\CHNL2DISK1.DSK01F discarddata=yes
    delete volume K:\TSMDATA\FS-POOL\CHNL2DISK1.DSK020 discarddata=yes
    delete volume K:\TSMDATA\FS-POOL\CHNL2DISK1.DSK021 discarddata=yes

    Default

    put all commands in a file on the sytem and then run the file as a macro
    macro c:\del_them_all
    Not sure if deleting this many volumes can lock up TSM. You might consider "wait=yes" added to each entry
