fbackup output error

Hi.
I try to make a backup using the next command line:
fbackup -f /dev/rmt/2mn -0vg /.respaldo

Where the .respaldo file contents the paths.
However, it appears these errors:
:please enter the new files's name
:could not open output file?
:would you like to continue this session?
:writer aborting
:Backup did not complete: Reader or Writer process exit

I changed the external tape drive, but it was working well.

Please someone help me!

Re: fbackup output error

Hi:

Instead of the no-rewind (2mn) device file, use a rewind one (2m):

/dev/rmt/2m
