Don't delete it.  That will get rid of the copy as well.  You need to do a
restore volume.  Do a help on that.  I usually do a preview and find out
what tapes I need from the vault first.  I mark all the tapes as unavailable
so that TSM will not use them.  When I get them all in the library I change
them to readonly and then do the restore.

Subject: Restoring data after deleting a volume

So I've got a volume that got all sorts of messed up somehow, one that
resides in my tapepool. I've tried moving the data from it with no luck -
too many errors. Since I should have a copy of this in the copy pool, I
should be all set. So I'm going to delete the volume with discarddata=yes
and make sure I've got the data from the copypool mirrored back onto the
tapepool (onto a new tape somewhere).

Question is, how do I do that? As in syntax? I can't just be "restore vol
00035-L1" or something that simple, right?

Thanks in advance...
