Hi - I think I know why my mksysb failed -- tape drive needs cleaning --
this is a new box that I was trying to set up for some final Y2k testing.
I need to have a system backup before I proceed but the IBM tape I have
for backup is rejected because the drive indicates it must be cleaned.
I don't have a cleaning tape for this box -- I tried to use the one I have
for my 59H but it did not like it -- said it was illegal tape - nice,
I know this sounds crazy but if anyone in the NYC area happens to
be working on Sunday (I'm giving up for tonight), and . . . has a cleaning
tape for a H70 7026 - can I borrow, buy?
Thanks in advance for any help.
