How is end-of-tape handling performed?

A: A virtual tape can reach end-of-tape under the following conditions:

  1. The storage capacity has reached a minimum configured value;
  2. the maximum configured amount of data has been written to the tape; or
  3. the maximum number of blocks have been reached. If the storage device is true tape, the end-of-tape condition exists when:
    1. The indication from the drive that the tape is near the end is received, or
    2. the maximum number of blocks has been reached.
