Re: File copy from HP LTO Ultrium tape.

The method you use to get the file off of the tape depends entirely on the method used to write the file to the tape.

 

So, how was it written to tape?  tar? fbackup? Some commercial backup program?

 

Your question can't really be answered until  the questions are answered.

Does it document the format?

Is there another option there to read from the tape?

You'll have to use brrecover. The SAP brtools packages is proprietary and it appears it does not save simple files like tar. Instead, it is more of a database structure and contents backup program.
