Hmmm...that's an interesting theory...but my tape drive is a good ole IBM
tape drive.
Says so right on the cover.

They are dialed into my system right I can't try your
suggestion...but it's worth a shot.
Can't do any worse than not work anyway <grin>

Thanks for the suggestion.

We had a customer a while back when we upgraded their OS/400 from V4R3
to V4R4, and the tape drive seemed to only work occasionally.
If we did a SAVLIB of one small library it would work fine, if we did
something larger like a SAVSYS it would fail.  It was because this
customer had a 3rd party tape drive emulating some device, but it could
not handle optimum blocking.  On this upgrade (and I thought it was V4R3
to V4R4, but I may be off one release), the default had been changed.

Perhaps try doing the backup without the optimum blocking?  Not sure,
its only a thought.
