Command to add an entry to Image Catalog.
Adding the individual ptf volumes into the image catalog is very easy. Use the following command, specifying TOFILE(*FROMFILE) will not recreate the BIN image in that same location and it will load within seconds. If you leave it to the default of *GEN, then it will recreate the file, and double the amount of storage consumed by your image catalog. *GEN can be used if you're using optical media, from a DVD drive, to populate your image catalog on local DASD. The name below will be the name of the file that is saved to the '/ptf' directory. Hint: Hit F9 and just rename the number sequence.
