make_tape_recovery verification

This may be a dumb question, but on Itanium 11.23 can I verify the tape using TAR just like on the RISC? My version of Ignite is 6.7.79. I tried the TAR verification and it failed....

Hi Dan:

For Itanium systems, do:

# mt -f /dev/rmt/0mn rew
# mt -f /dev/rmt/0mn fsf 22
# tar -tvf /dev/rmt/0mn

Regards!

Shalom,

The only true verification is to use the tape.

Once in a while you need to plan a test and restore a system.

There are a lot of things that can go wrong what won't be caught by running tar against the tape.
