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

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.
