Help: Archiving to multiple tapes

Help: Archiving to multiple tapes

Post by Cho Mo » Thu, 18 Mar 1993 08:47:51


I have about 300MB of data that I'd like to put on a couple of 150MB SUN tapes.
Is there an archiving utility (like tar) which can be used to do this?
Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

1. Can't find multiple archives on a tar tape

Try /dev/rmt3.5 or /dev/rmt/3.7 instead of /dev/rmt3.  Altough I am
not quite sure, /dev/rmt3.5 works by 'No Rewind' and 'No Retension',
and /dev/rmt3.7 works by 'No Reiwind' and 'With Retension'.  Probably
you may need to key in tar command each time for each archive.  But I
hve never used these faciliteis.
