Does your system have any rules about how data sets are named so that a node
might include a clue that would indicate that the file was a tape?

When working on z/OS the DSNCATLGD Function verifies the existence of an
external file without causing allocation if the file is on tape (unlike the
FILEEXIST Function which will mount the tape).
Ok, fine. Now say the file does exist (DSNCATLGD(filename) returns 1), how
I decide whether the file is actually on tape or not?
