ontape needs to check the size of the file it is going to restore; this is not possible with a pipe.
Try to install IDS 9.40 and use th erestore on that instance.
9.40 doesn't have the 2GB limit anymore, so first, uncompress, then restore.
See how it goes.
This is not actually a good way, since you 'll encounter a version mismatch of ontape, but maybe it will go on.
