I received a query today about how to copy one tape to another on a
Digital VT103. I've included the details from the original message
below. Does anyone know how to do this?

We use a Digital VT103 unit to control one of our machines, the system
is fine for the application, but we only have one copy of the tape with
the boot program and application programs on.

The VT103 unit has two tape drives and I think you can copy from one to
the other it just a matter of knowing the correct commands, hence the
reason for this email. Therefore I would be most grateful for any
suggestions you could suggest for the commands required to copy from
drive 0 to drive 1, we have so far tried the following:

Note :- RT11FB.SYS = Boot program (I think)


        TO: DD1


        FROM? DD0

        TO? DD1

The second method kicks up the following: - PIP-F-FILE NOT FOUND
