Subject:   Reading a Solaris DAT tape with tar
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help

I am having problems reading a tar tape on a 90m DAT which was written under
Solaris 2.4 with tar, too. I have a Sony SDT 5000.

tar simply gives me

	tar: read error on molonita:/dev/nrst0 : Input/output error

Of course I played around with the blocksize and tried to run dd before
calling tar, but nothing worked so far. :(

Please could anyone enlighten me, please?
