Re: error on make_tape_recovery

Seems to be some problem with your tape drive. Are you able to write a tar archive on the tape drive?

Re: error on make_tape_recovery

Hi Liu,

I suggest you should try using new media cartridge & if it still gives you IO error then you might need to replace your tape drive. IO error suggests issue with the tape drive normally.

Re: error on make_tape_recovery

Hi everyone,
My problem have been solved. After I turned off my server and tape drive and restart them, then I execute make_tape_recovery -Av. That's OK!
Thank you for your help very much! I love you everyone!

Re: error on make_tape_recovery

Hi Liu,

is your aim to create a bootable tape by make_tape_recovery including vg00?
Consider that the option -A on make_tape_recovery doens't have the same goal which had the obsolete make_recovery. The related option on make_tape_recovery is -x inc_entire=vg00.

Definitely what was

make_recovery -Av

now corresponds exactly to

make_tape_recovery -v -x inc_entire=vg00

HTH.

Best regards,
Fabio
WISH? IMPROVEMENT!
