BRMS does support Write Once Read Many (WORM) media. This is set up in the media class, WRKCLSBRM.

The Write Once media prompt identifies whether the media in this class should be treated as if the volumes can be written only once.  You would set this value to *YES if the type of media being used with this class is Write Once Read Many (WORM).


If a WORM cartridge is expired and attempted to be overwritten, message CPF41B1 - Data overwrite not allowed would be posted.

NoteNOTE: Any media class can be set as WORM . This includes virtual media. Virtual media enrolled in a media class that has WORM set to *YES will have the same rules applied to it as physical worm media.
