Problem with mksysb:tar:Reached end-of-file before expected.

Hello World,

mksysb fails to make a backup on 8mm. After copying some hours
stdout says

Quote:> ...
> a ./usr/local/tex/inputs/pictex/pictex.tex 253 blocks.

> 0512-005 mksysb: Problems in making the system backup.

and stderr

Quote:> ...
> tar: 0511-194 Reached end-of-file before expected.

The tar doesn't always fail at the same point. Is it possible that
the tape is full? My .fs_size reads

Quote:> imageinstall
> rootvg 4 hd4 / 2 8 jfs
> rootvg 4 hd2 /usr 122 488 jfs
> rootvg 4 hd3 /tmp 4 16 jfs
> rootvg 4 hd1 /home 1 4 jfs
> rootvg 4 hd9var /var 4 16 jfs
> rootvg 4 hd10 /usr/sys/inst.images 37 148 jfs
> rootvg 4 hd14 /users 47 188 jfs
> rootvg 4 hd12 /dos 31 124 jfs
> rootvg 4 hd11 /nfs/sahara 123 492 jfs

and mksysb seems to backup from last to first fs.

Any help would be appreciated!
