And an error occur..

ERROR: The list_expander command failed. This could be due to a problem with
parsing /etc/fstab or /etc/mnttab file - see messages above.

The errors were not listed so we can't really help. The list_expander is verifying files and directories with a number of tests. The part about: see messages above is important. Please copy those to this thread.

> make_tape_recovery -a /dev/rmt/3mn

The defaults are not very useful. Use this command:

make_tape_recovery -I -v -x inc_entire=vg00 -a /dev/rmt/3mn

And look at the man page to see why each option is used.
