    Unanswered: ontape -s to tape drive on different server

    Hi ,

    I want to move informix data from old server to new server using ontape commands.
    I have tape drive on new server which is compatable with old server.

    My plan is to :
    1)backup using ontape -s to tape drive on new server from old server
    2)restore using ontape -r from new server

    Can i get some advice on running ontape -s to tape drive in different server ?

    Regards
    Raju

    ontape backup to remote server

    You need to set TAPEDEV in onconfig file to:
    TAPEDEV <remote m/c>:<tape device path>
