Re: ignite question

The key messages are these:

* Archiving contents of abtmon via tar image to local device/dev/rmt/0mn.
pax: /dev/rmt/0mn : No such device or address


The "No such device or address" means that either the tape device /dev/rmt/0mn does not exist on this server or it did not have a tape in the drive.

If you do an 'ioscan -kfnC tape' does anything show up?

No ,it did not show up anything........"

if the above is true, I fail to see how you could write to it, as it doesn't exist. I'm mystified at this point.
