Use IEBCOPY to copy the tape to disk and the members you copied to tape will be restored.

Why is this even an issue? It is easy to test, well documented in the manual, and shouldn't require any questions!

@ Vasanthr

Sir, also have a closer look to ADRDSSU Utility.

Especially if you will take your files with you from one company to the next company :-)
