Everybody in Italy has a scooter. I think its required ;)

Its summertime to boot so the required riding outfit is flip-flops and shorts, t-shirt optional.

You just don't know how difficult that is becoming..

Why just yesterday, I upgraded the OS on a guest partition on an IBM system i.  The primary was at 6.1 and the guest was going to 7.2.  Cleared this through IBM support.  I needed to restore some fixes via tape to the guest so we moved (virtually) a tape adapter over to the guest, did the restore, and left it there.  After the upgrade, we moved the adapter back to the primary.  Then we couldn't get the tape drive to work.  Had to call IBM to replace the adapter.  I'm thinking that the guest updated the firmware on the adapter to 7.2 levels and then the 6.1 OS on the primary just couldn't deal with it and gave up.  It also could be that the fixes on the primary aren't current enough to support the new firmware upload.  So lesson learned, if you are moving adapters on partitions, move them back before you update the partition in question.

Of course, things like this make me crazy and annoyed.

I didn't realize tape is still being employed for storage, that would make me crazy right there. I had to google it!  http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/storage/tape/  ;D

Made perfect sense to me.

I didn't realize tape is still being employed for storage, that would make me crazy right there. I had to google it!  http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/storage/tape/  ;D

Almost all large ("real") computer systems use tape backup.  Sometimes in addition to online backup, but still used extensively.

What else would work better?
I have a LTO4 tape library and each tape can hold 1.6 TBs for the cost of around $100 per tape.
We have approximately 100 tapes and at any given time there are around 30 tapes offsite.
I have backups going back 13 months.
