Hubert,

Every time I've gotten that type of msg was because there wasn't enough
room on that particular file system to tar the file, i'd try cp'n the
data to another partition or send the tar to a dif FS, basically you
have like say a 5 gig drive with 3.5 gigs used up leaving 1.5 left and
you're trying to tar 2gig so the system doesn't have enough room to
finish off the tar ball

1. 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

and stderr

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

and mksysb seems to backup from last to first fs.

Any help would be appreciated!
