Re: Anyone used an Ecrix Autopak?



# mt -f /dev/st0 status
SCSI 2 tape drive:
File number=0, block number=0, partition=0.
Tape block size 1024 bytes. Density code 0x80 (DLT
15GB uncomp. or
Ecrix).
Soft error count since last status=0
General status bits on (41010000):
 BOT ONLINE IM_REP_EN


Hmmmm.  It's a DLT but your blocksize is being
reported as a 1024.  It might possibly need to be set
to 0 first.  Try:

mt -f /dev/st0 setblk 0

Then write a small amount of data to the tape:

tar cvf /dev/st0 /etc/hosts

Then try that dump command.
