tar: / dev/st1/: can not open: No such device or address


error message while try to take back from ultrin 215 external drive using linux ver 2.3 ; dlt address is /dev/st1

tar: / dev/st1/: can not open: No such device or address
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now."

I had removed st1 by rm /dev/st1 --> than restarted server & ultrim,
created again by mknod -m 660 /dev/st1 c 0
showing drive through command cat /proc/scsi/scsi

Please suggest...

Ok...don't delete device nodes.

First, delete the /dev/st1 that you created. Then, since this is a SCSI device, so power it off, along with the server (don't just reboot). Power the drive back on first, then the server. The node will probably come back.

If not, check here http://linux.die.net/man/4/st for info on manually creating the node you deleted.
