Thanks David, I'll have to look into that!

To avaid havign a "rep" to each tape, for instance on CHECKIN,
use option "Search=BULK" on CHECKOUT use "Remove=BULK".

DRM CHECKOUT commands have a SIMILAR OPTION.

This way you only have to REPLY once for each batch, not for each
tape.

TSM 5.3 Server I understand, removes the REPLY altogether.

Hey guys, quick question.

We recently upgraded to an IBM3584 library from an older 3494. We now
have
to manually interact with the library for tape check in or outs. When
our DR
media is created we have to 'q request' and then 'rep #' of the request
for
each tape. This obviously is a pain since we have to reply for every
tape
that is moved in or out. I was curious if you guys had a script that
could
automatically reply to all open requests perhaps? We were told
upgrading to
5.3 would fix it but I'm curious if there's a way to do it without the
upgrade. If you guys can think of anything let me know :)
