Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle Rdb Server on OpenVMS - Version 7.0 and later
Oracle CODASYL DBMS - Version 7.0 and later
HP OpenVMS Itanium
HP OpenVMS Alpha

Goal

On occasion, there might be an issue trying to write to magnetic tapes. Since an actual tape drive may or may not be available for testing the issue, or determining if the problem is drive specific or generic, testing may be done with a 'logical magtape'.
