How to copy tapes from one virtual tape library to another and re-catalog the data on the new tapes.
Creating backups with VM:Backup and using EMC DLM virtual tape library.
Our customers need a means of migrating existing VM:Backup tape media and associated catalogs to new tape media and we
provide a solution for doing so, VMBMCOPY.
We recommend using VM:Backup's tape copy utility, VMBMCOPY. The utility requires that you be running VM:Tape as well.
VMBMCOPY allows copying to a totally different media type with different capacities and labeled with a different volser. Because of that, it is much more compatible with normal tape handling procedures. It also has the advantage of creating a new VM:Backup catalog that refers to the new tape volsers.
