dump on RH6 with DDS3

dump on RH6 with DDS3

Post by Holger Burd » Sat, 30 Oct 1999 04:00:00



hi;

I tried to backup some Filesystems with a brand new DDS3 from HP (SCSI)
but shortly after the dump started
i get a message to put a new tape (#2 ) into the device. The Tape i used
is DDS3 and i did a rewind with mt !

This is what gets logged by syslogd:

Oct 29 18:15:01 www kernel: st0: Error with sense data: extra data not valid Deferred error st09:00: sense key Medium Error
Oct 29 18:15:01 www kernel: Additional sense indicates Track following error
Oct 29 18:15:01 www kernel: st0: Error on write filemark.

My device is /dev/{st0,nst0 nrst0}

I modified some little script from our Sparc/Solaris box simliar to this
...

TAPE=/dev/nrst0
FS1=/opt

/sbin/dump -0u -f $TAPE $FS1
Any Hints about Linux spcifics (additional Parameters or whatever) are
are welcome !

PS I know i could use other tools as well but i prefer  dump/restore
.... so please no use this use that stuff ..

Thanks in advance

Ah ha -- there's your problem.  Dump has no idea how big your tape is.
You have two options, depending upon which version of dump/restore you're
using.  If you're using 0.3, use the -B flag and then tell it how big
the tape is in KB.  If you're using the 0.4b series (currently 0.4b7), then
there's a -a flag which tells dump to keep writing until it finds the end of
the tape.

You can get the current versions of dump/restore at:

Good luck.

Thanks  - i ftp'ed the latest dump/restore/rmt added '-a' and it seems to work
that way.

1. Alphaserver 800, RH6.0 and still trying to detect my Dat Drive DDS3

I have a Digital Alphaserver 5/500 with a Red Hat 6.0 and the last
administrator didn't configure the Dat Drive.

So I have a problem because I'm learning linux in a Alpha platform and I
don't know how to configure my dat drive.
I have 4 hard drives and a dat drive. All scsi.
If you need more information ask me.
Thank you very much but I need heeeeeelp!!! :(

In my /proc/pci I have these interesting lines:
PCI devices found:
  Bus  0, device   5, function  0:
    SCSI storage controller: Q Logic ISP1020 (rev 5).
      Medium devsel.  IRQ 17.  Master Capable.  Latency=248.
      I/O at 0x9000 [0x9001].
      Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0x9000000 [0x9000000].
  . . .
 Bus  0, device  14, function  0:
    RAID storage controller: Mylex DAC960P V2 (rev 2).
      Medium devsel.  IRQ 24.  Master Capable.  Latency=255.  Min Gnt=4.
      I/O at 0xa800 [0xa801].
      Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0x19002000 [0x19002000].

In the kernel, I have these SCSI options. So I think scsi tape is
activated.. or not??
