Happy New Year!
Friday, I attempted to backup 2 systems to tape using ufsdump. (We normally
use IBM Tivoli.) I had the machine down at "init s" and I kept running into
problems during the ufsdump verification. I even tried it on an unmounted
ufsdump 0cvf /dev/rmt/0 /array1
ufsdump 0cvf /dev/rmt/0 /dev/md/dsk/d30
Would the verification errors simply be due to bad tape(s)? If so, is there
way of checking tapes in advance of waiting for backups to fail?
Solaris 9 if it makes a difference.
DLT8000 tape drive (I think.)
