Tapeware back up problem in Linux

I have a HP Surestore dat 40 tape array attached to a Itanium Server, after install the tapeware for linux that come bundle with the tape array, it cannot backup to the tape when I try to run it, the error message is error 88: No device specified or all devices are now offline. But i can use tar command to backup the file onto the tape. Is there anything I missed out?

Re: Tapeware back up problem in Linux


SO you say that you can work with the tape
with commands like tar (read/write) also dd.
If so maybe you need to upgrate the tapeware
for the newest version.
