Maybe I'm missing something, but why don't you use the os400 commands to
perform the backup. (INZTAP SAVLIB and RSTLIB) Those commands should work
whether your in the 36 environment or not.

Subject: Tape drive problem

I'm confused.

I have 2 clients with the exact same machine - 9406-170 - with the exact
same tape drive - 63A0-001. They are both running SSP 7.5 as a guest of
OS400 V4R3M0. I went to Site A, initialized a tape, copied some libraries,
took the tape to Site B and tried to restore. Got the message SYS-7493 "can not use non-sl initialized tape as SL or BLP". Scratch head?? Tried again -
same message. Then I initialized the tape at Site B, took it to Site A,
copied the stuff again, went back to Site B and got the same message when I tried to restore???? Both systems are at the same SSP PTF level. I tried two
different tape types - one a 6525, the other a SLR5-8GB. Both TAPEINIT
commands are identical except for the vol id. Both systems can save and
restore their own backup tapes. I didn't try to save a file at Site A and
restore to Site B. The Tapeinit command is as follows: TAPEINIT
TC,SL,VOLID,CLEAR,,ERASE,REWIND. Any ideas?
