    Unanswered: how to configure tape device for backup

    Hi Friends,
    Thanks a lot for your kind help .
    I have been getting help from dbforums for setup the informix environment.
    I feel , it is boon for new comer to learn.

    I have small doubt in setting up the tape device.

    I have configured most of the things in the server and i am using to " ontape " command for backup.

    just let me know, how does the "ontape" command identify the tape device when i issue "ontape -s -L 0" command.
    do we need to set TAPEDEv parameter in ONCONFIG file.
    just help me to setup the tape device for backup.

    Thanks in advance.

    tape devices

    Yes you just need to set TAPEDEV to the correct setting for the OS - windows uses \\.\TAPE0, AIX generally /dev/rmt? and Linux /dev/st0 for the first SCSI tape drive.
