    You need to check your tape drive reference manual to see what it can handle.
    Range of values
    Values greater than pagesize/1024

    The database server does not check the tape device when you specify the block size. Verify that the TAPEBLK tape device can read the block size that you specify. If not, you might not able to read from the tape

    The above should still apply. Set it to your pagesize / 1024. For example, if your using a 2k pagesize:

    2048 / 1024 = 2

    So set it to 2 or more.
