I never stop my TSM server to add volumes. I just let the TSM server
format the volume. Define the cluster using standard IDCAMS as you have
and then just define the volume to the storage pool. TSM does the rest.
Or, I just have a dummy copy of the "opt" file to perform the standalone
formating. You still have to add it to the storage pool, the usual way !

Adding new DB & RecLog volumes whilst TSM server is running (on OS390)
TSM Server (Version 188.8.131.52) running on OS390 2.10 (in the near future
Up to now I always halted the TSM Server to define & format additional
See example JCL below :
//ALLOCAT EXEC PGM=IDCAMS
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *
DEFINE CLUSTER(NAME(ADSM.DB06) LINEAR MB(2341) VOL(ADSM21))
//ADSMFMT EXEC PGM=DSMFMT,DYNAMNBR=300,COND=(0,NE,ALLOCAT),
//OPT DD DSN=ADSM.ANRSERV.OPTIONS,DISP=SHR
//DSMAMENG DD DSN=TIVSM.V5R1M0.SANRMSG(ANRMENU),DISP=SHR
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSTERM DD SYSOUT=*
Because the TSM Server options file (//OPT) is in exclusive use by the TSM
I have to stop the TSM Server before being able to execute the format job.
Up to now there was no real problem with halting the server for a few
minutes to do this, but it is becoming
more and more difficult (even impossible) to find a moment where I can
stop the server (due to API-clients
which are accessing the server randomly) without causing archive/restore
I think this problem should be solved by simply using another options file
name (which is a copy from the original one)
for the format job (and TSM Server keeps running in the meantime).
Can I do this ? Or do I forget something and MUST I stop the TSM Server ?
Thanks for any info.
