I need to copy a virtual tape to real tape through JCL. Can anyone please let me know on how to do it Via JCL.

Thanks and Regards,

It should be a matter of naming the file on virtual tape as the input and specifying the proper dsn and unit for "real" tape for the output.

Suggest you talk with your storage management people as they will know the specifics for your environment. We do not know what "UNIT"s are defined to your system.
Hope this helps,
