Sure, you can recover from it! You're just using a different device.

If not Pete, Larry, Kevin, myself, and a whole bunch of others have some

Since it's a tape /library/, you can't do *MOUNTED hence you can't do
it unattended. If I remember right, that is.

So display the tape to get it into a drive in the library.
Then Vary off the Library.
Then vary on the drive that the tape is in.
DO the SAVE 21 to that drive not to the library.

That will work? I never knew that.

Can a complete bare metal restore be done that way? Probably not - it's not
an alternate IPL device.
