Duplicated tape drive (tape_drive) specified in the tape argument list

Message
Duplicated tape drive (tape_drive) specified in the tape argument list
Cause
You have specified a tape drive name twice in the argument list of the backup or restore command.
If a tape drive name is duplicated in the dump or smtape backup command, data is backed up twice to the tape attached to that tape drive. If the tape drive name is duplicated in the restore or smtape restore command, data is restored twice to the destination.
Corrective action
Retry the job without specifying the same tape drive more than once in the tape argument list.
