To create writeable virtual images in an image catalog:
 
  1. Create the image catalog:

    CRTIMGCLG IMGCLG(MYCATALOG) DIR('/MYCATALOGDIRECTORY') CRTDIR(*YES)

  2. Add the image from physical media or from image files received from another system. If you are adding a new blank image, type the following command:

    ADDIMGCLGE IMGCLG(MYCATALOG) FROMFILE(*NEW) TOFILE(NEWIMAGEFILE)IMGSIZ(16000)

  3. If you do not already have a virtual optical device type 632B, create one:

    CRTDEVOPT DEVD(OPTVRT01) RSRCNAME(*VRT) VRYCFG CFGOBJ(OPTVRT01) CFGTYPE(*DEV) STATUS(*ON)

  4. Load the image catalog in the virtual device:

    LODIMGCLG IMGCLG(MYCATALOG) DEV(OPTVRT01)

  5. Initialize the virtual image:

    INZOPT NEWVOL(MYVOLUMEID) DEV(OPTVRT01) CHECK(*NO) TEXT(MYTEXTDESCRIPTION)
