shalom,

You have to run some mt commands to get past the tape header, then you can extract any file you wish.

Re: copy only netconfig from ignite tape ?

i am extracting only netconf file, here are the command i will use,

mt -t /dev/rmt/0m rew
mt -t /dev/rmt/omn fsf 1
cd /tmp
tar -xvf /dev/rmt/omn/ etc/rc.config.d/netconf

will it work ?

another question is, i can insert the tape and do it from the normal command prompt or i should do it from reboot ?

Hi,

Note that usage mt -t is Obsolescent mt -f you can use. and device file ends with 0mn not omn. You can use these commands from command line.

No, you do not need to reboot. This can be done from the command line. Pay attention to your device file, though. You call it /dev/rmt/0m part of the time, and /dev/rmt/om the rest of the time.
