CBT Base Tape V493 Created  Feb - 09 - 2017 backup with DFSMSdss z/OS R2.2 tersed Large file 681M NEW

CBT Overflow Tape V466 Created  July - 25 - 2004 backup with FDR 5.4L38 tersed Large file 128M NEW

CBT Overflow Tape V466 Created  July - 25 - 2004 backup with DFSMSdss z/OS R4 tersed Large file 128M NEW

FDR 5.4/38 and DFSMSdss on z/OS R4 were used to make the backups to disk and the files were then TERSEd to compress them.  You must download and upload these files to your z/OS system as BINARY. They have to be uncompressed using the IBM TRSMAIN utility program and then restored using the FDR or DFSMSdss utility. If you do a full pack restore of the CBT Base Tape, as opposed to a dataset restore, track 0 of the pack will contain IPL text for ZZSA.  

Please download only what you need - these are large files and take a considerable amount of bandwidth.

FTP Download which can be direct to z/OS

FTP to cbttape.net  anonymous login

/pub/dsnbackup

Retrieve ONLY the file that you will use at your site   CBT Base and Overflow tapes are available in both FDR and DFDSS formats.

CBT.DFDSS.CBT489.TERSED
CBT.FDR.CBT489.TERSED

CBT.DFDSS.COV466.BACKUP.TERSED
CBT.FDR.COV466.BACKUP.TERSED

Help with the contents of the backup archives

All files backed up are named CBT.tapevol.fileno.type for example 

CBT.V489.FILE182.PDS 

CBT.COV466.FILE001.DATA

These files were SMS managed.  You may require storage administrator authorities to restore them at your site.
I had to create a private copy of the FDR load library with ALLCALL disabled and with DFDSS I had to use ADMIN. 

Below is a sample batch jobs to download the current CBT tape directly to your z/OS or OS/390 Host.

Sample with transparent proxy:

//JOBNAME JOB 'XXX,XX,XXXXXX,S=I','PROG NAME',
// CLASS=X,MSGCLASS=H,MSGLEVEL=(1,1)
//*************************************************
//* Sample using a transparent proxy
//* Use 'CAPS OFF' when editing as file names are mixed case
