Re: I need to restore just one file from a make recovery tape.
I tried

# tar tvf /dev/rmt/0mn

and at the beginning I got this two files with the leading /

rw-r--r-- 0/3 2418 Sep 11 12:32 2005 /etc/passwd
rw-r--r-- 0/3 399 Sep 11 12:32 2005 /etc/group

then they come out again among the others without the leading /

rw-r--r-- 0/0 399 Sep 11 12:32 2005 etc/group
rw-r--r-- 0/0 2418 Sep 11 12:32 2005 etc/passwd

any idea?

Should I backup /etc/passwd, /etc/group on the restoring machine before "tar" over it?
