Multi-Volume tar(1) archive on CDR
I'm having a problem restoring from a multi-volume tar archive that is contained on CDR media. The archive was created as follows:
tar -c -M -L 700000 -V "photos 2004-05-13" -f /tmp/tar.image --new-volume-script=/usr/local/burn_tar_image photos
The burn_tar_image simply executes cdrecord to burn the tar.image file onto the CDR platters.
Attempts to restore (or simply list contents) fails when attempting to read the second volume - error indicates the volume is out of sequence. The following two lines are the volume information contained on the first two CDR platter (read via dd & od):
photos 2004-05-13 Volume 1
photos 2004-05-13 Volume 2
I've had no problems creating / reading multi-volume tar archives from QIC Tape, DAT Tape, ZIP and JAZ media on the same system. Any thougjts / suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
