When doing the SAV command how many times do you have to remember the syntax for the DEVICE Variable. If you do this one time procedure then you only need to use the Symbolic Link Tape_Drive for the DEVICE Variable instead of 'qsys.lib/XXXXX.devd'. Change XXXXX to your device name and something that you can remember for the link name. I use Tape_Drive. Now when I need to do the SAV Command for the DEVICE Variable I just use Tape_Drive for the Variable.
ADDLNK OBJ('/qsys.lib/XXXXX.devd') NEWLNK(Tape_Drive)LINKTYPE(*SYMBOLIC)
