ufsdump, crontab and multiple tapes
Has anyone got experience managing multiple tapes with ufsdump? When ufsdump needs a second tape because of space problems I get this message in UNIX prompt
So I simply insert a new tape and mounted and writes yes then enter
DUMP: NEEDS ATTENTION: Is the new volume (#2) mounted on `viva-pro:/dev/rmt/0' and ready to go?: ("yes" or "no")
However if I program the job in CRONTAB there is no terminals to perform this task interactively. Does anyone know how to overcome this?
how do you insert a new tape from a crontab job?
we had the same issue and turn the auto backups to manual backups.

if you have software like legato or veritas then it's not hard but at the moment I dont have them
