Re: copy tape to tape

I enquired internally and most standard backup applications will offer tape to tape copy. HP's Data Protect is one, for instance.

If you just want to use a HP-UX command then dd ought to work. I'm no expert on dd but I did find the help pages which might give you the options:

If your source tape is full, then make sure you use a good tape to copy it to as auto-sparing will use up tape capacity and you may not fit it all in if there are too many spares.
It's more interesting when it's gone wrong
