smtape restore

srennie_hess

Hi 

 

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.

 

Thanks

The destination volume needs to be a DP type volume.

Did you create it with '-type DP' ?
