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

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 ?

Best Regards

Iain Wilson
