We're ordering a new 8286 Model 41A with 7.3 on it. IIRC that has USB ports on it. To avoid adding the very expensive tape drive, we're considering using virtual tape and then copying those tape images to offline backup, like USB drives. Can those USB drives be connected directly to the 8286 Model 41A? If so, what are the commands to activate the drives or make them ready to be used to store/retrieve the virtual tape image?
