restoring btcreate tape on LSM system

Is it possible to create a bootable tape using btcreate for a system running LSM?

Will the restore work or do I have to make some changes with LSM configuration?

Re: restoring btcreate tape on LSM system

Hi,

are you meeting the following conditions mentioned in man btcreate?

greetings,

Michael

The following restrictions apply:

+ You cannot run multiple instances of the btcreate command. The
/usr/run/bttape.pid lock file is created when the command runs and is
removed when that instance of the command is terminated.
+ LSM support is provided only for root, swap and usr filesystems.
+ LSM support is provided on a system only if it is configured with LSM
volumes at installation.
+ LSM support is provided only in unattended mode.
+ Mirroring and striping are not supported options for bootable tape.
