trying to do dump to remote tape drive

Hi -

I am simply trying to dump a local filesystem to a remotely hosted tape drive. The remote host is a RHEL 5 machine also. It complains of "no route" but the route IS there:

[root@louise /]# dump 0uBf 160000000 thelma:/dev/nst0 /boot
DUMP: thelma: No route to host
DUMP: login to thelma as root failed.
[root@louise /]#
[root@louise /]# ping thelma
PING thelma ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from thelma ( icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.037 ms
64 bytes from thelma ( icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.011 ms
64 bytes from thelma ( icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=0.010 ms
64 bytes from thelma ( icmp_seq=4 ttl=64 time=0.010 ms

dump(8) reports that it uses the program in /etc/rmt to perform remote dumps. For me, this is /usr/sbin/rmt.

You could try:
RMT=/usr/sbin/rmt dump 0uBf 160000000 -f root@thelma:/dev/nst0 /boot -v
