Why wouldn't you use tape for the DB backup/restore. Seems like that

My reason for that was thus: In order to let the new server access the
tapes for DB restore, I must let the new server access the tapes. :) I
didn't want to let that happen at all, at all; so I stuck the backup on
media which I could offer the new server without endangering the 'old'
(i.e. still live production) server.
Another option is just halting TSM and rsyncing the db/log volumes over to
the new location, assuming it is the same path on the new server.
Works for the final exercise, but not for testing.
