Remote tape access? (RMT/RCD)

» close window

The Question is:

Can you explain how it is possible to use the RMT/RCD command available in
TCP/IP since Version 4.2 to mount a tape on a server, and use it on VMS
Client to create backup with MOUNT and BACKUP utilities !

The Answer is :

  The OpenVMS Wizard is not particularly familiar with an rdump and
  rrestore for OpenVMS -- RMT/RCD serves OpenVMS tapes to remote
  client systems.
  For related information on remote tape access (using DECnet) that may
  be of interest here, please see the OpenVMS FAQ section MGMT12.
