Re: SCSI tape problems

The problem appears to be that the tapes drop records

the blocksize.

Are you sure that it is during the write operation?

[root ls1 ~]$ dd if=tapetest500K of=/dev/st1 bs=10240 ; dd if=/dev/st1 of=junk bs=10240 ; cmp tapetest500K junk
48+1 records in
48+1 records out
36+1 records in
36+1 records out
tapetest500K junk differ: byte 215041, line 854

If you add another


dd if=/dev/st1 of=junk2 bs=10240

does that equal junk or is the error in another position?

The library has two drives, right? Is it a problem on
both drives?
