We have our Xerox defined in the System Config file as

Rdevice 071E TYPE 3211 NO_SPOOLING

Maybe a CP SET RDEVICE 0701 TYPE 3211 may work...

Eric,
Thanks...

Can that be added to the SYSTEM CONFIG so the rdev is automatic?

Is this device supposed to be emulating a supported printer or is it an unsupported device?

Subject: varying unfamiliar device to vm

We want to move a Xerox DP75 printer to our test zOS image running
under VM. The Xerox DP75 printer has a Sun workstation that front ends it.

The CHPID was swtiched over and the path varied online.

However when the printer is varied online, we get

HCPCPN6895I Device 0701 cannot be varied online because the device
HCPCPN6895I identification data is inconclusive.
HCPCPN6785E Unable to identify device 0701 dynamically.
1 device(s) specified; 0 device(s) successfully varied online


I am new to some of this. I seem to remember hearing that the rdevice
info can be defined to VM since VM cant sense it.

Xerox channel-attached printers usually look like 3211s, which don't
respond to autosensing. You need a Rdevice line in SYSTEM CONFIG to
define the device (see CP Planning and Admin, device type 3211). You can
also use SET RDEVICE to give it the information temporarily, but you
need to add the Rdevice line in SYSTEM CONFIG to make it permanent.
