On a HP-UX OS I have a backup on a magnetic tape created from the SAM. Everywhere I read the instructions to list-verify the contents of the tape is to use the TAR program:
#tar tvf /dev/rmt/[tapefile]
I've created a new directory /tape with 777 permissions, but when I execute the above command it gives me an error message:
#pwd /tape #tar tvf /dev/rmt/0mn >> listtape Tar: blocksize = 2 directory checksum error
Going after the blocksize error I used another version of the command with the "b" flag:
#tar tvb 2 /dev/rmt/0mn >> listtape directory checksum error
Anybody have a sugestion? How can I view the contents of the tape? What does this error means?
