You may have a head mis alignment on one machine.  It can read/write
it's own tapes but may not be able to read tapes from other machines.  I
would see if both machines can read an IBM tape, the same IBM tape just
to eliminate a hardware problem.  Do you have an old diagnostics tape?

They are running 36 apps using sys/36 machines, not under the 36
environment.
As to the commands used, they were SAVELIBR to save and RESTLIBR to
restore.
I have a number of other sites using the same software on the same box
and have never run into this problem.
