Cron job terminates

While I do a tar -tvf /dev/rmt/2m on one of my HP-UX 10.2 servers, I am getting this error:
Tar: blocksize = 16
directory checksum error

Can anybody tell me what could be the problem?

Hi Suni,

It looks like the tar archive was created with a blocksize of 16KB
Try to untar it with: tar -tvf /dev/rmt/2m 16

Cheerio,

Re: Cron job terminates

I guess you need to use the stipulated block size for the tar operation.

Did you try to read the tape with the "cpio"?

cpio -icvt < /dev/rmt/2m
