I really don't think the second tape is any advantage.
If you really don't think it's a tape full issue then I'd call IBM and ask
them if you tripped on something.

Sent by: midrange-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx "I'm not a BRMS expert but to me having that QUSRBRM on a separate tape would be a big advantage if you had to do a full system restore." Agreed Larry - but the cost for tapes just for that would be prohibitive. "Could tape have temporary write errors? I'm wondering if bad areas are being skipped." Not likely John since we use different tapes each day. " I print this to a PDF file on a daily basis and store it on 3 servers in multiple countries." Whoa Rob - I thought I was cool just by having my reports in pdf's in gmail and yahoo... ;) But three countries = uber cool!
