Re: Problem with drive for make backups

Do not understand the question.
Is this the problem:
Error on device named /dev/rmt0h - Place DLT7000 tape drive unit #33 ONLINE ?
Looks like your OS version should be 4.X.
What is brbackup?
And command "# mt stat /dev/nmt0h" is wrong.
With this command you get status of default tape drive which is /dev/rmt0h.
If you want status of another (for example /dev/nrmt1h) tape command should be:
# mt -f /dev/nrmt1h stat
Please post output of:
- # ls -l /dev/rmt* ; ls -l /dev/nrmt*
- # file /dev/rmt* ; file /dev/nrmt*
- # scu show edt
And please provide some more details.

Re: Problem with drive for make backups

Hi,

The error "Place DLT7000 tape drive unit #33 ONLINE" looks self explanatory to me...

As Vladimir says, it would be useful to know exactly what you're trying to do, what commands you're running, what version of Tru64 etc.

Cheers,

Rob
