What does "ll /dev/rmt/0mn" show?

Any evidence it wrote anything or was the rewind the first thing it tried to do?

Re: make_tape_recovery failed with rewind error

Also, view the results of # ioscan -fnC tape

 

Is /dev/rmt/0xx CLAIMED?

Re: make_tape_recovery failed with rewind error

Thank you for your advice.

This make_tape_recovery is online backup,
I tried after stopping Netbackup using /sbin/init.d/netbackup stop
and remove crontab job(crontab -r), then, I got  message.
"=======  08/15/11 18:14:58 JST  make_tape_recovery completed with warnings"

My guess this warning message from following pax warning,
-------
       * Archiving contents of pmrnbk91 via tar image to local device /dev/rmt/0mn.
pax: var/opt/ignite/recovery/archives/pmrndb91/2011-07-18,15:36 : >= 8GB. Not Dumped.
WARNING: The pax command returned a non-zero exit status (exit status 1).
       * Creation of system archive complete.
-------
I understand ignite can not tar a large size file.
There is 23GB file on this server, but we don't need backup the file,

so I guess this make_tape_recovery ended successfully.

PAX-ENH should be able to handle any filesize.  You need to install:

Re: make_tape_recovery failed with rewind error

Thank you all and I'm sorry my late response.

Unfortunately we have no plan to apply this patch.
