Backing up directories on the IFS to tape

How do I backup directories on the IFS to tape? What command and parms?

Here is an example showing how to backup all the directories in the IFS except /QDLS and /QSYS.LIB to tape drive TAP01. /QDLS is omitted because it should be saved with the SAVDLO command. /QSYS.LIB is omitted because it should be saved with the SAVSYS and SAVLIB commands...

 SAV DEV('/qsys.lib/tap01.devd') 
    OBJ(('/*')('/qsys.lib' *OMIT)('/qdls' *OMIT))  
    ENDOPT(*UNLOAD) 
    UPDHST(*YES)
