RMM was designed around the assumption that tape datasets would be cataloged or
else scratched. When we converted to it many years ago, we had to deal with a
wholly different business practice: keep tape data sets, including 'GDG
members', more or less forever. In the early days we had to install exit code
to achieve the desired result. Today I believe that it can be done purely with
parm values (I'm not an RMM guy). The important thing in a conversion is to
make sure that tape handling is consistent across products, whatever that

I'm not sure how RMM will interpret 99000 without EDGUX100. I've always
implemented at least the default EDGUX100 and UXTABLE. Is there a retention
date listed in the volume record?
About that '**' VRS, that will essentially make WHILECATALOG the default
retention for everything, but then you will also have the overhead of VRSEL
processing for everything. There are better ways to set that up.
I would recommend that with your current setup, you create a VRS for the GDG's
that you want to be WHILECATALOG controlled. You can run VRSEL with the VERIFY
option to see the effects without actually doing anything. Please contact me
offline if you'd like to discuss other options.
