I have been experiencing problems when I attempt to
perform 'ufsrestore' on any Solaris 2.4 machine with tapes
that were created using 'ufsdump' on Solaris 2.3 or
'dump' on SunOS 4.1.3.
The error message that i see states something like
"Invalid Tape Length Specified". In all cases, the
tape drive being used is the Exabyte 8500C
All of these dumps restore with no problem on any
machine running SunOS 4.1.3 or Solaris 2.3 using
the default blocking factor.
Has anyone had any similar experiences or
is there a 2.4 patch related to this ?
