For years, when doing a backup, I have done a DMPTAP of the header and
trailer labels to insure the created tape is readable.

For some reason, 90+% of the time when I do that with the new (to me)
3570-B02 tape subsystem I got, it fails.  I have checked for APARS and such
and not found any.  I have switched to doing a DSPTAP instead, which is

Anybody know anything on this?  Thanks.
