    The command line admin console is part of the TSM client so you'll need this installed on the server if you haven't already. Under AIX it should be in /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin called dsmadmc.

    A tape once empty should return to the Scratch pool as long as it's status is read/write. A "q vol dnw003 f=d" should show you it's detailed status.

    You could always try doing a "move data dnw003".
