Dell/Linux Tape Backup Settings

Post by j.. » Fri, 26 Jan 2001 06:44:05



Does anyone have the proper denisty, block, etc. settings for this
tape backup unit (or any text files or working scripts) using the Red
Hat "dump" and "restore" commands.  Any help or URL's??  Seagate and
Dell's sites are useless for this unit.

The tape drive is installed in a Dell Poweredge 1300 using a DDS4 150m
tape.

It is known as a Dell PowerVault 100T Drive.

It is also know as a  Vendor: ARCHIVE  Model: Python 06408-XXX Rev:
8071   Type:  Sequential-Access                ANSI SCSI revision: 03

I have also heard that it is actually made by Conner.  (???)

Anyhelp or leads??

1. Good SCSI tape backup for Linux 1.2.13 on a Dell with Win95?

I'm looking for recommendations on a SCSI tape backup system
to get for my Dell Dimension.  I use an Adaptec 2940, and
I run RedHat Linux 2.0 (kernel 1.2.13) and Win95 (I'd like
to use it with both, of course).

I'm looking for something I can put in a full-height bay,
preferably with high-capacity tapes (1.6/3.2 is fine).  

TIA,
