    Unanswered: help! ontape restores failing

    Ugh. Trying to restore an ontape backup and getting the following error.
    ---start error info
    Read/Write End Of Medium enabled: blocks = 99542
    Please mount tape 2 on /dev/rmt0 and press Return to continue ...
    <we mount the tape and press enter>
    Read/Write End Of Medium enabled: missing blocks, expect 99544, processed 99542.
    Physical restore failed - function buc_fe.c : Archive API processing failed at l
    ine 791 for msgtype failed code -1 errno 0
    ---end error info

    I have determined that its not a bad tape set and the tapes are in the correct order. I have also tried another set of tapes just in case! Relevant onconfig settings:

    TAPEDEV /dev/rmt0
    TAPEBLK 256 # Tape block size (Kbytes)
    TAPESIZE 0 # should use entire tape

    Hi WiccaChic
    I think that the block 99542 is damaged

    its a new bug...per support

    Only manifests if you are doing a restore with ontape using a set of backups createdon a system with TAPESIZE=0.

    This is very ugly folks.
