    For full restore of system , it is required that particular server should be offline.

    If I take-offline the informix, when I write 'ontape -r' It seems doesn't work.
    There is no message.

    Cool

    check the TAPE Parameter (should be same in source/dest onconfig files )
    check the path of dbspace files (should be same in source/dest location and must exit with approprite rights)
