I'm a bit of a newbie, so please bear with me
I have a centos 5.3 server with a DAT72 tape drive. The software we use has a pre scripted CPIO command designed to backup a directory to the tape drive. This worked fine in centos 4.6, but with this new server I am getting an error: Removing leading '/' from member names. This happens when I try and verify the data on the tape.
I know this is to do with absolute or non absolute filenames. What I'd like to do is to revert the CPIO to whatever setting works from centos 4.6
Just one thing, it won't be possible to change the scripted CPIO command as this runs on 100s of servers, and changing it for one server isn't something we want to do.
I'm not sure if the above makes sense, but any help would be greatly appreciated
