Got a new tape drive. IBM 3581 connect to my Solais 9 880,
works well but Sybase no likey. any ideas ? When I look at
the sense data from my scsi device, I see where no block
size is set and defaults to 0, I can set it but that value
does not hold to sybase. I can tar to the tape all day
long.

tape list devices are
/dev/rmt/4stn, 4stcn, 4stcbn, 4stcb, 4stc, 4stbn, 4stb, 4st

1> dump database CATS_DEV
2> to '/dev/rmt/4stcbn'
3> blocksize=4096, capacity=18874368
4> with init, nounload
5> go
