Re: tape device file

Hi,

On Tru64 v5.x the tape-devices are located under these directories:

/dev/tape/ (rewinding)
/dev/ntape/ (for non-rewinding)

Yes, you can use the mt command on Tru64.

Cheers,
Kasper

Re: tape device file

For Tru64 V4.0x:
Rewind /dev/rmt#x
Norewind /dev/nrmt#x

For Tru64 V5.#:
Rewind /dev/tape/tape#_d1
Norewind /dev/ntape/tape#_d1

In V5.# you can look at '# man tape' for more details.

The mt command works on Tru64. Again look at '# man mt' for more details.
