RE: Dell RD1000 Catridges / Backup Tapes



Hi John,
It is probably a good idea to do the mount manually for a backup. You
should rely on a little as possible when doing backups. If you expect
everything to go wrong then you more likely to know if something did not
work.

If you want to fix the "workaround" I suspect automount is the culprit
and it might be a good idea to read up on it.

Regards
