Re:Tape Configuration



Hai ed,
Mine is a SCSI tape on the secondary channnel,

Device is tandberg slr6.. redhat recognise the tape
drive. but i cannot write anything to it using tar.

it says I/O error.

tape device file is /dev/st0
when i issued the comand
mt -f /dev/st0 status i got

SCSI 2 tape drive:
File number=-1, block number=-1, partition=0.
Tape block size 0 bytes. Density code 0x0 (default).
Soft error count since last status=0
General status bits on (50000):
 DR_OPEN IM_REP_EN

but no other commands like "rewind" and "seek" is
working giving the error message "I/O error.
