Thanks, I'll consider using tar in the future! In this case though I
need to check my diskdump restore failure:
# dd if=/dev/pt0 of=/dev/hdb
0+0 records in
0+0 records out
Any suggestions how to troubleshoot this?
Would I be helped by the "full" mt command? Is there a pt driver that
implements all (or most of) the mt command options?
