Well, if you problem is just getting them out of the 3484, all you have to
do is mark them as OFFSITE and run the CHECKOUT command.
Keeping track of them is another matter entirely.
If this is something you plan to do regularly, look at a product called
Autovault at www.coderelief.com.
We use it here for vaulting with TSM.
You would put your future DB2 backups into a DIFFERENT tape storage pool,
and tell Autovault to manage the vaulting of that storage pool.
DRM will do similar for copy pools, but not primary pools.

Subject: checkout DB2 backup [Virus checked]
we want to check out a DB2-backup. We backup our DB2-DB over the DB2-api in
the TSM. The data are stored in a 3494 library. Now we want to move the
tapes in a other location (out of the library, for example a safe).
What is the best way to move the data out of the library???
