Create a Db2 for i service that does the equivalent of the WRKCFGSTS command where I can check if a device, or range devices selected by a wildcard, is varied on or off.
Rather than use WRKCFGSTS *DEV *TAP to see if all of the tape drives are varied on it would be useful to have a Db2 service where I can retrieve that information into a table for future reference or use a display file to display the results.
