Symptoms

An RMU/BACKUP of a database creates a 22 tape volume backup set. This backup now needs to be restored, using 5 tape drives.

RMU/RESTORE using the following command is processing on only 1 tape drive after requesting the next volume (volume 6) be mounted:

$ RMU/RESTORE/NOONLINE/LOG/NOCDD -
