Please address future mail here openafs-info@openafs.org instead of the 
developers list.

Openafs provides a suite of backup commands that are well documented. 
Refer to the Admin Guide and Admin Ref documentation on the web site.

You can create the backup volume sets as disk files and then call a TSM 
client session to push them up to the tape library.  That's what we do 
and it's working well.
