I was thinking of that... I shut down the server and checked the usual suspects (terminator on the cable, SCSI IDs, etc.) but didn't find anything out of place. Also, the same command in Knoppix (Linux) using /dev/st0 (the Linux equivalent of /dev/sa0) appeared to write to the tape and then list the items on that tape. I didn't see how long it would take, though. In retrospect, maybe I should have let that run longer. :( How certain are you that its a termination problem?
