using SCSI floppy on HPUX 10.20 system

using SCSI floppy on HPUX 10.20 system

Hi all,

I have an HP 715/50 with a SCSI floppy.
I have managed to get the floppy recognized, and have initialized (using
mediainit) some floppies to unix format.  I have also been able to read
and write DOS format floppies.  All of the messages I have seen so far have
given great detail about dos floppies, and little or no information on
unix files.
Can someone please give me a brief primer on using tar to read and write
unix files to a SCSI floppy?  the character file is /dev/floppy/c0t0d0

thanks,
Jude Federspiel

You just do it ;-) For example,

  tar -cvf /dev/rfloppy/c0t0d0 /usr/share/lib/pub

Note, the raw device (rfloppy) is the one to use here.

Hi Michael

Thats ok, but I assume he wants to read the file from The DOS-Filesystem

DOS file to HP-UX:
-----------------
1. Insert a 1.44mb DOS diskette with into the HP-UX system floppy drive;
2. Do a: doscp /dev/rfloppy/floppy:/dos.txt /tmp/dos.txt
3. Format the file for HP-UX:  dos2ux /tmp/dos.txt >/tmp/unix.txt

HP-UX file to DOS:
-----------------
1. Insert a PC-formatted 1.44mb diskette into the HP-UX system floppy
drive;
2. Format the file for DOS: ux2dos /tmp/hpux.txt >/tmp/dos.txt
3. Then do a: doscp /tmp/dos.txt /dev/rfloppy/c0t1d0:/dos.txt

1. HPUX 9.02 + File system Dos on floppy disk

With the Hp Ux 9.02 mount on a workstation HP, I must mount a Dos file
system from floppy disk !!! This operation is not possible beacause the
HP UX don't support this !!! There are someone that know one solution
for this problem ???
