TSM 4.2 checkins using the BULK option with your 3584 LTO automated library

Checkin returning copy pool LTO tapes using the bulk command.

Make your job easier. Always checkin returning copy pool LTO tapes using the bulk command. The LTO tapes are placed in any order in the LTO I/O SLOTS. Then your TSM 4.2 checkin command with the bulk option will automatically checkin all the tapes in your I/O port. Only one reply is necessary, and you do not have to checkin tapes individually. When all your tapes are have been checked in, it's just a matter of using DRM to make all of those tapes onsite available scratches.
