Re: how to get tar 10 gb file?

You can't.  You must either use pax or GNU tar.

What HP-UX version are you using?

>I visited your link but one question.   Do patches works on 11.31?

 

Only the one mentioned for 11.31.  You don't have to download PAX-Enh on 11.31.

Now the recommended 11.31 pax patch is: PHCO_42016

 

>please one example of 10 gb tar.  How can make tar 10gb file?

 

pax -w -v -f foo.pax -x pax path-to-backup ...

I'm not sure.  As Steven said, zip may be better.  Or Samba.

 

>Is pax also compress the size or not.

 

HP-UX's commands are not like Linux.  They can only do one thing at a time.  ;-)

You need to pipe it to gzip:

pax -w -v -x pax 44muf0cm_1_1 | gzip > test8.pax.gz

 

>But how can untar or unpax that particular file or folder on PAX utility.

 

pax like tar, will allow you to specify which files you want to extract.

 

pax -r -v -f test8.pax path-of-file-on-archive ...

 

>I run pax on 100 gb directory after put that file on tape library.

 

Probably no need for two steps, you can write it to the tape in one pipeline.
