Abstract: The IBM TS7700 Series supports Tape Control Unit Initiated Reconfiguration (CUIR) function, a software mechanism for tape controllers that automatically requests an IBM Z (z/OS) host to vary that TS7700 cluster’s devices offline when service is required. Once service has completed, the TS7700 can also automatically request that the same devices be varied online.

TS7700 and z/OS support for Tape CUIR functionality and associated commands are described in this User's Guide.
introduced to help automate and simplify the process.
