Re: Command mt

Tru64 also has /usr/bin/mt command for tape manipulation.

Re: Command mt

Combining your questions, I see that you want to use the mt to rewind the tape but you don't find the tape device.

To identify your tape device special file use:

hwmgr v d -cat tape

This will list the names of the tape special files, then use something like:

mt -f /dev/ntape/tape0c rewind

Re: Command mt

By the way, what is your OS version?
# sizer -v
In case you have V5.X tape would be something like /dev/tape/tapeX and /dev/ntape/tapeX
In case you hane V4.X tape would be something like /dev/rmtXh and /dev/nrmtXh
