Issue:
The client wants to duplicate primary CA View tapes using ABARS (Aggregate Backup and Recovery Support).
Their attempts, however, result in error message IEC023I and a S237-04 condition.

How are they to solve this problem?
 
Environment:
CA View - All Releases
Resolution:
CA View tapes are proprietary in format.

As such:
 . Only CA View can process the data on the tapes.
 . A copy cannot be made of a View tape using any utility other than those supplied by View.

As the client has a static database, and wants to have another set of tapes at another site, it was suggested that they:
 . Set SARINIT STORGRPn parameters, such that a duplex tape is created.
 . Start and Stop the SARSTC task.
 . Run SARPAC on all of the tapes, creating duplex copies.
 . Set SARINIT STORGRPn parameters, removing the duplexing.
 . Start and stop the SARSTC task.
