Try taking the VOLUME of tape dataset and invoke TSO TIQ.

You can find volume using ISPF option 3.4.

Here is example of GDG, here 158020 is VOLUME.
Code:

DSLIST - Data Sets Matching xxxx.xxxx068.*                         Row 1 of 58
Command ===>                                                  Scroll ===> CSR 
                                                                               
Command - Enter "/" to select action                  Message           Volume
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
         xxxx.xxxx068.FILE.BKUP                                              ??????
         XXXX.XXXX068.FILE.BKUP.G0497V00                            158020


TSO TIQ (Depending what is installed in your shop) is Tape Inquiry utility.
Enter VOLUME once you get following and press ENTER.

Code:

IEETMS1 PASSWORD VERIFIED                                             
IEETMS1 AWAITING REQUEST/REPLY (ENTER C TO EXIT CA-1 INQ/UPD SESSION) 


Also refer to this link for more details

(look for 'Online Tape Inquiry'
