VMOUNT



VMOUNT

     Enables or disables the Movable Volume facility.

SYNTAX


VMOUNT {ON[,AUTO]}[;ALL]
{OFF }

PARAMETERS


ON or ON,AUTO Enables the Movable Volume facility so that all
valid user MOUNT/VSRESERVE and operator
LMOUNT/VSRESERVESYS requests are allowed. When ON
is used without AUTO, the operator must reply to all
MOUNT/VSRESERVE requests.

When ON,AUTO is used, MPE/iX attempts to satisfy
user MOUNT / VSRESERVE and operator LMOUNT / VSRESERVESYS
 requests without operatorintervention.

OFF Requests to use the Movable volume facility will be rejected.

ALL Prints all volume set mount-related console
messages, including those not requiring operator
intervention, on the console.

OPERATION


If the Movable Volume facility is enabled when you issue a
VMOUNT OFF command, users having reserved volume sets will
be unaffected; the command will be satisfied when the last
access is complete.

MPE/iX uses a naming convention for volume sets that is
different that of MPE V/E for private volumes. Refer to
the MOUNT, DISMOUNT, VSRESERVE, or VSRELEASE commands.
Once the Movable Volume facility has been enabled, VSUSER
command to determine which users have which volume sets
reserved. Refer to the VSUSER command.

The Movable Volume facility is enabled immediately following
a system startup (the setting is equivalent to VMOUNT ON,AUTO).
 However, you will still receive console messages concerning
volume set requests.

The operator will have the greatest interactive control over
the use of volume sets by using VMOUNT ON;ALL. The command
that least interrupts the operator when users are accessing
volume sets is VMOUNT ON,AUTO.

This command may be issued from a session, job, in BREAK, or
from a program. Pressing [Break] has no effect on this
command. It may be issued only from the console, unless it
is distributed to users with the ALLOW command.

EXAMPLE(S)

     To disable the Movable Volume facility so that no messages
     are sent to the console when users attempt to reserve volume
     sets (the default condition) enter

     VMOUNT OFF

     To disable the Movable Volume facility and still receive
     messages on the console when users attempt to reserve volume
     sets, enter

     VMOUNT OFF;ALL
