If you have both tape drives connected to the same machine. You could use the command DUPTAP (Duplicate Tape). This would allow you to copy it from one to another with out restoring it. However if that does not work you could look into the virtual tape drive. This is new I think at v5r4 maybe v5r3. This would then allow you to run the DUPTAP over the virtual tape drive.

Hi All Excuse my ignorance here but I beg your indulgence. I have a number of MODATA and IMHIST archives stored on tapes (1.2 and 2.5 GB data cartridges). We are purchasing a new i-series and will no longer have access to this format of tape ( we will only have an Ultrium). I therefore need to copy the data from one tape to format to another. Do I have to restore this data to Mapics then rearchive it to the Ultrium tapes or is there a way I can copy from one tape to another ?
