I'm trying to do a smtape restore on cdot 8.2.1 but job fails with "Error Description: Destination volume is not a replica".
Tapes are fine as i can do "system smtape showheader -tape /xxxx/rst0a -tape-block-size 256" and see tape contents. My destination volume is larger than original and is restricted and volume name is same as source (i'm restoring to a different system).
Restore command is - "system smtape restore -volume vol_name -tape /xxxx/rst0a -tape-block-size 256"
Any ideas much appreciated.

The destination volume needs to be a DP type volume.
Did you create it with '-type DP' ?
I hope this response has been helpful to you.
