I am tryin' to read a QIC-24 tape, which contains Oracle v6.0.36, in a Sun QIC-150
drive. Can this be done?
The QIC-150 drive is the only tape drive connected to a SS2 running SunOS 4.1.1.
The tape has been rewound with "mt -f /dev/nrst0 rew" and there is a tar file on it.
tar xvf /dev/nrst0
and it comes back with...
tar: read error: I/O error
Could it be that the tape is just bad?
I also tried "tar xvf /dev/nrst8" (which someone suggest I try), but that also did
Thanks in advance.
