HP LTO 3 with Sun Solaris 9

Dears,

Good day,

Sorry for posting this here, I don't know were to post it. I attached HP LTO 3 to Sun Solaris 9 on Sun Fire V210 and follow the instruction at : http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=lpg50151&prodTypeId=12169&prodSeriesId=443365&locale=en_US

But I couldn't backup more than 400 GB on the tape. I'm using HP LTO 3 ( 800 GB ) tapes ;

This is the following result from my system :

root@Obi-Wan> mt -f /dev/rmt/1cn status
HP Ultrium LTO3 tape drive:
sense key(0x13)= EOT residual= 0 retries= 0
file no= 1 block no= 0

I'm using ufsdump.

How can I know why SUN Solaris can't backup more than 400 GB ?

Regards,

LTO3 has a capacity of 400 GB or 800 GB if your data can be compressed 2:1. If your data cannot be compressed, then you won't be able store more than 400 GB of data.

What kind of data are you trying to backup?

Hi,

Thanks for reply, it's most likely gzip and tar files.

Thanks
