It would appear that you may be doing your SAV with SEQNBR(1) instead of
SEQNBR(*END).  Using SEQNBR(1) will overwrite your SAVLIB *ALLUSR.

Just an FYI, I was taught to avoid the INZTAP if at all possible.  Besides
the possibility of overwriting active data my understanding is that it also
clears the errors logged on the tape, increasing the possibility that you
may save to a tape that you will not be able to restore from.  If your save
tape is past its Expiration date you should be able to overwrite it with

subject: Multiple Saves to one tape

I wrote a pretty simple CL that does an INZTAP, a SAVLIB *ALLUSR and then a
SAV on specific IFS folders and files. The final step is a DSPTAP.  The

DSPTAP is only showing the SAV contents, not the SAVLIB AND the SAV
contents, which is what I would expect. Did I miss something or can't you do
both a SAVLIB and a SAV to the same tape?
