Hi, We have following problem on one of our releng_4_9 boxes:
A very large (700gig) backup was made over a number of AIT-2 tapes, during the backup procedure one of the tapes had a writing error, the dump just went to the next tape (The procedure itself was automated by scripts and loader). Now when we try to restore this backup set, the restore gets stuck at the tape dump was having a problem with (Even position on tape is the same), the problem is: It will not let us skip to the next tape but complains about read error and asks if we should retry, if we say no it exists, it we say yes it retries and brings same error again. We tried to use -y in hope that the restore will eventually reach EOT but this results in non-stop spamming with "Tape read error while trying to resynchronize" messages for many hours. -R will request same tape again and will not let us insert next. Is there any way to force restore into skiping this tape and continuing on the next one? I have seen only one refference to identical problem (http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=17791) but it is not clear to me if it was fixed or not.
