I've used it, and unfortunately it starts with a clone operation so
you'll need to send it to a clone pool.  Not a big issue with me, I
keep a couple pools hanging around that I can reassign between backup
and clone pool type so things like this can be done.

>From the manpage:

     The nsrstage program is used to migrate existing  save  sets
     on  a  manual basis.  Migration is the process of moving one
     or more save sets between volumes.  The process begins  with
     a  clone  of the specific save sets to the new volume speci-
     fied, followed by the deletion of cloned  save  set  entries
     from  the  media database (see the -S description). Finally,
     the possible removal of the  save  sets  from  the  original
     source  volumes.   The  second  and the third operations are
     triggered by  the  successful  completion  of  the  previous
     operation.  The  data  is moved to new media volumes, making
     room for new data on the original volumes.
