eof marker on tape

Posted 11-09-2010 at 09:37 PM by mervclel

When using the 'mt' command:
I am using a linux system with a HP_Ultrium_960 (800GB) tape drive. I inadvertantly used the 'weof' command when testing and wrote an 'eof' marker at the beginning of the tape. I have used the command 'gtar -ztvf /dev/rmt/2' and get an 'unexpected end of file' prompt.
Can I reverse this 'eof' placement somehow? Also can I use commands such as the 'fsf' to read after the 'eof' marker. I need to retrieve the data.

Appreciate if someone could...

Ordered more temp sensors. Might as well since they are free. The first set should be here tomorrow.

Reluctantly, set up a mswinxp machine as a home automation controller. Had to recompile some control code. The web side was pretty much plug and play.

An old ladder and some dead motherboards are about to make a maybe geeky xmas tree?

It's turkey chili night!

Format output, e.g. postings of iptables output or /etc/mtab with column -t
