I have stored AS/400 reports to optical library using On Demand (Ex RDARS). now that we have decided to remove RDARS and go for saving queues from AS/400, is there a way to copy back info from the optical Library to AS/400 and have it to its original format?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Which optical library are you using? If it’s an IBM 3995 / 3996 (which is really a Plasmon G Series UDO library) or an HP SureStor, or a DISC jukebox then this is fairly easy. Firstly, IBM discontinued support for the UDO G Series 3995 and 3996 machines and HP has long since done the same for their machines.
If the data is residing on the library you will need a RAID appliance in between the library and the AS/400. We’ve done a few hundred of these migrations using out Hybrid Optical Storage solution. Send me an email and I’ll be glad to provide some additional technical details that will help you talk to the AS/400 directly.
