-n|-number

This BRBACKUP command option defines the number of tape volumes to be initialized.

Input syntax: -n|-number <number of tapes>

Default value: 10,000

Define the number of volumes tapes you want initialized (you can use this option only together with one of the options -i, -i force, or -i show).

The default value is 10,000. The program processes all existing tapes. (i.e. in the init<DBSID>.sap parameter volume_backup or those defined with the option -v). To initialize only a specific number of tapes, change this value to meet your requirements.
