BACKUP, tapes, and Operator Assistance?

» close window

The Question is:

Is there any way to automatically abort the backup batch job when it hits an
 error instead of asking for operator assistance through the OPCOM?

The Answer is :

    To avoid operator requests, use /NOASSIST on the BACKUP command (or the
    associated MOUNT command for the tape, if one is used).
    If necessary, an operator can abort a command that has issued an
    operator request using an appropriate REPLY/ABORT=nnn command.
    REPLY/ENABLE, REPLY/STATUS, and REPLY/DISABLE may also be of interest.
