comment How to troubleshoot tape backup issues via mt on Linux for Windows backups?
Right, unfortunately this is for tapes that I did not create and since it was created by Windows 2003 Backup application, there are a number of variables I may not be able to find out...

comment How to troubleshoot tape backup issues via mt on Linux for Windows backups?
Indeed I'm hitting some walls here and I suspect it is regarding block size perhaps. mtftar < /dev/st0 | tar -tvf - fails with tar: This does not look like a tar archive and dd if=/dev/st0 of=tape_contents fails dd: error reading ‘/dev/st0’: Cannot allocate memory. tcopy is not floating around on ubuntu here it seems so I'm kind of wondering how to ascertain additional data necessary to pursue this.

Okay, the mfttar is all I needed to know. I can get the tape drive working fine with Linux; it is Windows that is having a hard time (strangely enough) with the HP drivers. Linux works right out of the box for the SCSI adapter AND the tape.

@peterh I don't believe so, except I'm having a nightmare of a time with drivers for it and the SCSI adapter. I'm considering trying to use perhaps Windows 7 or 8 to recover instead. Linux would be a quicker path for me since I can use another server, but c'est la vie if not.

comment How to isolate Google Gmail SMTP server IPs directly?
In actuality I wanted inbound smtp servers, but I also found some real value in DTK's response as well. If another answer for inbound were posted, I'd accept it, but I have since moved on as I found a work around that kind of get's me to where I needed to go (yet a real answer would be helpful).
