VSRELEASE


VSRELEASE

     Releases a volume set that was explicitly reserved by the
user with VSRESERVE. This corresponds to the DISMOUNT command.

SYNTAX

     VSRELEASE [volumesetname]


PARAMETERS

volumesetname       The volume set that is to be released.  If you omit
the parameter, the request is issued for the home
volume set of the user's logon group and account.
Refer to "OPERATION".

OPERATION

     This command releases a volume set when it is no longer in
use and negates a previous reservation of a volume set.

MPE/iX uses a new naming convention for volume sets.

In MPE V/E, the name A.B.C indicates that B is the name of a
group and that C is the name of an account. MPE/iX will
accept that name, but no interpretation is made as to the
referencing of B and C. Instead, MPE/iX treats A.B.C as a
single, long string name. It is the flexibility of the new
MPE/iX naming convention that makes it possible for MPE/iX
to work with a volume set designated A.B.C.

MPE/iX volume set names may consist of any combination of
alphanumeric characters, including the underbar (_) and the
period (.). The name must begin with an alphabetic
character and consist of no more than 32 characters.

A volume set called MY_OWN_PERSONAL_VOLUME_SET is acceptable
in MPE/iX, and so is MY.OWN.PERSONAL.VOLUME.SET; similarly,
A.B.C is acceptable.

Be aware, though, that if a volume set is named according to
the old MPE V/E naming convention (A.B.C), then you must use
an unambiguous reference when using the MPE/iX volume set
commands. For example, the command below works:

Vcommand A.B.C

The next command, however, will fail to access the volume set,
since you cannot specify the first part of the volume set name
alone and expect the group and account to default.

Vcommand A

This command may be issued from a session, job, or in BREAK,
or from a program. Pressing [Break] has no effect on this
command. You must have UV (Use Volumes) or CV (Create
Volumes) capability to use this command.
