Introduction:

Does a SIMULATE produce the RC=16 because no action is actually taken?

Question:

Executing a FORWARD MERGE process using SIMULATE for a parameter and I receive a  RC=16.

Does a SIMULATE produce the RC=16 because no action is actually taken?

The only message I see is:

ASMFM050 volser# contains logically deleted files - will be retained

Answer:

A RC=16 is normal in SIMULATE processing. It is simply a return code that says no tapes were processed.

No tapes (virtual or otherwise) were processed but you do receive a report advising what "would" have been completed if the SIMULATE was not the option chosen and the execution would have been active. 

Additional Information:

In the System Reference Guide section 14.6.4 the return codes specified.
