    RH9 - exabyte tape problems


    A couple of issues when using a SUN EXB-8505SMBANSH2 Exabyte tape drive with a box running Red Hat 9.

    Having a problem trying to write large files to tape. I know there is way of setting block sizes etc but can't find the way to get this going. Small files can be written.

    Any ideas?

    What is the capacity of you're tape drive? And what is the size of the large file?
