For boot test only with boot.
For test of data:
#mt -t fsr 1
#tar tv|more

Hi:

OK, since you don't want to boot, I'd verify the tape this way:

# mt -t /dev/rmt/0mn fsf 1
# tar -xvf /dev/rmt/0m filename > /tmp/tardata

The first command skips over the LIF written to the tape. Note the no-rewind device. The 'tar' will enable you to verify the files that were loaded to the tape.
