How do I write the export directly onto the tape?

I want to perform a client export, but there is not enough storage space on the /usr/sap/trans/data directory. How do I write the export directly onto the tape?

I prefer a remote client copy instead of a client export (and import). It is easier and probably faster. If a remote client copy is not an option, have a look at 'OSS NOTE 18236 R3trans Export to tape / splitting the export.' It explains the procedure in detail.
