Which tape management systems does TelTape support?
TelTape supports IBM's DFSMSrmm (Removable Media Manager), CA-1 TMS, CA-TLMS, BMC Control-T (Control-M/Tape), and ASG Zara. TelTape can also work with custom or "roll your own" systems by using the "USERTMS" feature, and even works with "No TMS" (no tape management system).

Tape datasets are created with all kinds of proprietary software packages, and may even originate on non-System z, or non-IBM platforms. Can TelTape still copy the data?
TelTape is designed to copy whatever data is recorded on the tape. Because TelTape uses the EXCP access method, any data blocks up to 256K in length can be copied. Since some products record volume serials in their own database, TelTape by default automatically recognizes and bypasses tapes that are controlled by External Data Managers such as CA-DISK, CA-View, DFSMShsm, EOS, FDRABR, INFOPAC, TSM, and ViewDirect. Such tapes are migrated using the product's "recycle" utility, so you need not pay extra for a software tool to migrate these tapes.
