We are attempting to tar multiple compressed files to a tape device and are running into some problems.
We have so far been unable to store more then one file to tape.
Syntax we are using; "tar cvf /dev/nrmt0h [firstfile.Z]". That syntax works OK and the first file stores
successfully. However, when we try to store the second file using syntax;
"tar uvf /dev/nrmt0h [secondfile.Z]" we get an error stating the end of device has been reached, insert new tape
press enter blah blah blah. We are using a new 4GB tape and there is no way that either file is even close to that size.
We are using OSF/1 2.1 b on a DEC 3000. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. Please e-mail to
Thanx in advance
