HSM Commands

This is not intended to be an exhaustive list of all the HSM commands, with every associated parameter. IBM has a few manuals that will give you that sort of detail. This is a list of those commands that I have found useful, with a few tips on when you would use them.
The commands are split into three pages as described below.

Dataset Commands

This page discusses the commands that you use to manage datasets, including

Lascon updTES

I retired 2 years ago, and so I'm out of touch with the latest in the data storage world. The Lascon site has not been updated since July 2021, and probably will not get updated very much again. The site hosting is paid up until early 2023 when it will almost certainly disappear.
Lascon Storage was conceived in 2000, and technology has changed massively over those 22 years. It's been fun, but I guess it's time to call it a day. Thanks to all my readers in that time. I hope you managed to find something useful in there.
All the best
