1.$ INITIALIZE/USER_NAME=CPA $FLOPPY1 ACCOUNTS Initializes the volume on $FLOPPY1, labels the volume ACCOUNTS, and gives the volume a user name of CPA. 2.$ ALLOCATE DMA2: TEMP _DMA2: ALLOCATED $ INITIALIZE TEMP: BACK_UP_FILE $ MOUNT TEMP: BACK_UP_FILE %MOUNT-I-MOUNTED, BACK_UP_FILE mounted on _DMA2: $ CREATE/DIRECTORY TEMP:[GOLDSTEIN] This sequence of commands shows how to initialize an RK06/RK07 volume. First, the device is allocated, to ensure that no one else can access it. Then, when the volume is physically mounted on the device, the INITIALIZE command initializes it. When the volume is initialized, the MOUNT command makes the file structure available. Before you can place any files on the volume, you must create a directory, as shown by the CREATE/DIRECTORY command. 3.$ ALLOCATE MT: _MTB1: ALLOCATED $ INITIALIZE MTB1: SOURCE $ MOUNT MTB1: SOURCE %MOUNT-I-MOUNTED, SOURCE mounted on _MTB1: $ COPY *.FOR MTB1: $ DIRECTORY MTB1: . . . $ DISMOUNT MTB1: These commands show the procedure necessary to initialize a magnetic tape. After allocating a drive, the magnetic tape is loaded on the device, and the INITIALIZE command writes the label SOURCE on it. Then, the MOUNT command mounts the magnetic tape so that files can be written on it. 4.$ BACKUP filespec MUA0: ... /MEDIA_FORMAT=NOCOMPACTION- _$/REWIND This example creates a BACKUP tape with compaction and record blocking disabled. 5.$ INITIALIZE/ERASE/SHADOW=($4$DKA1300, $4$DKA1301) NONVOLATILE $MOUN/SYS DSA42 /SHAD=( $4$DKA1300 , $4$DKA1301 ) NONVOLATILE %MOUNT-I-MOUNTED, NONVOLATILE MOUNTED ON _DSA42: %MOUNT-I-SHDWMEMSUCC, _$4$DKA1300: (WILD3) IS NOW A VALID MEMBER OF THE SHADOW SET %MOUNT-I-SHDWMEMSUCC, _$4$DKA1301: (WILD4) IS NOW A VALID MEMBER OF THE SHADOW SET $SHO DEV DSA42: DEVICE DEVICE ERROR VOLUME FREE TRANS MNT NAME STATUS COUNT LABEL BLOCKS COUNT CNT DSA42: MOUNTED 0 NONVOLATILE 5799600 1 1 $4$DKA1300: (WILD3) SHADOWSETMEMBER 0 (MEMBER OF DSA42:) $4$DKA1301: (WILD4) SHADOWSETMEMBER 0 (MEMBER OF DSA42:) This example shows correct use of the INITIALIZE/ERASE/SHADOW command. Note that the command specifies multiple devices on the same line.
