    Unanswered: backup/restore on tape in network

    Hi !
    i'm trying to backup and restore with ontape on a tape that is installed on my informix-backup-machine.
    ontape -s -L 0
    on that tape shows no errors, but when i try to restore on the backup-machine
    ontape -r quits with

    >function read archive backup failed code -2 errno 0

    onconfig is same on both machines, except for values of TAPEDEV

    anybody who understands me and my problem??
    help!

    thnx

    atue

    Hi,

    The structure of on-lines must be equal.
    Retore is on the same maquina or another one ?
    The tape drives are compatible ?
    With the protected tape, test to read it with the commando dd (UNIX).

    Hello Atue!

    I know your problem cause we work together here but i can´t reproduce why it happens sometimes at an lv 0 restore. I usually reboot before i execute ontape -r, maybe that´s the point. Who knows help??

    Thx in forward
