>After reading pages 16-4 to 16-5 of the Road Map, it seems to me that the
only
problem with using FRCOBJCVN when restoring our libraries is if it would
take more
than 24 hours. In my case, the restore should only take 6 hours and the EUA
predicts 10 hours for object conversion. This would be helpful to do both
steps at
once because I would put our single 8mm tape in and let it process
overnight,
thereby not having to do the object conversion later that next day. Does
anybody
know of any problems with this idea?<

Doing Object conversion is not advisable during the restore.  First of all
most system that do this have a time out problem with the tape drive, ugh. 
Also there are problem of doing a restore going over 24 hours.  Do object
conversion after the fact.  Plus, object conversion in the method you
suggest is single thread and this is ugh.  I have done more object
conversion than any other in the world with PC/Accelerator and single
threading is for the birds.  However, you are the boss.  It is up to you
but I would not do if!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
