V7R2 Virtual Tape to an iASP

mkc451 asked
Last Modified: 2015-09-21
I have a question about Virtual Tape. I want to setup a backup to disk solution on Power 8 from a 4 drive 1.2tb production system, adding another 1.2tb of drives then setting them up as iASP. Then using a virtual tape to backup the production system. Not sure exactly how to do this, should be able too. Any advice or redbooks/articles anyone knows of .... this should be doable. Everyone hates tapes but me, but they want me solve this problem w/no tape backups. Don't see the big deal but it should be doable. I would still have to move backups off to tape during the day -- but since tape is external that should be doable.
