That White Paper on configuring the library is great. I can now manipulate the "picker"
and move tapes from slot to slot. I can even do backups with tar. The problem now is
that fbackup tells me:
"output file /dev/rmt/c9t1d0BEST is not a valid device file for backup"

But this same device file works just fine with tar.

Any thoughts? Thanks.

Hi Dave,

Did you ever solve this issue? I'm experiencing the same problem, except my system complains that /dev/rmt/0m is the invalid device. Like you, I can tar to the device.
