mksysb fails exit code 2

I'm trying to backup our 3.2.5 box which goes smoothly until I am assuming
the end of the tape is encountered:

a ./u2/cov_f33/inv/bin/POCLOSE 930 blocks.
a ./u2/cov_f33/inv/bin/PODET 1116 blocks.
a ./u2/cov_f33/inv/bin/POHDR 1114 blocks.
a ./u2/cov_f33/inv/bin/PORCT 1059 blocks.
a ./u2/cov_f33/inv/bin/PTDCALC 919 blocks.
a ./u2/cov_f33/inv/bin/PURRPT 812 blocks.
a ./u2/cov_f33/inv/bin/PURSCSQ 1073 blocks.
a ./u2/cov_f33/inv/bin/REVALC 909 blocks.

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

---- end ----
1800-035 Exit status (2) returned by command.
(Command process used stdout and stderr file
descriptors connected to SMIT via pipes.)

    Exiting SMIT

It is the tar command that IS failing - the man page didn't shed much light.

Any suggestions?

Thank You.
