AFBackup keeps ejecting the tape OS: freeBSD 4.8-STABLE afbackup-3.3.5
Hi, okay I am having a difficult time here. I must be misunderstainding something. I have one tape drive and two clients. one of the client machines dis also the server which has a single tape drive attached to it. the tape drive handles only one cartridge at a time. I am rotating backups between 3 separate cartridges. each weekly backup should be able to fit on one tape only since the tapes are 50GB each. I have already used these tapes for backup. The tape recently rotated.and as soon as the tape was inserted I received mail to run the cartready program and did that. then afbackup ejects the tape from the drive and sends me the following message: "The device /dev/sa0 on host hostname.domain.com is not ready for use. You are requested to check the device for possible errors and to correct them. Best regards from your backup service. " do I need to do more then cartready? Am I missing a step to rewind the tape? Any ideas here thanks, Noah _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
