I am using a Travan 20/40GB tape on a PV100T tape driver into my DELL
poweredge SC1420 machine runing with NetBSD 2.0.
Very often, when I want to rewind my tape, I am getting the following
message : netbsd: st0: WARNING: cannot revert to default density
Hereafter is the result of a mt status
SCSI tape drive, residual=0
blocksize: 1024 (0, 0, 0, 0)
density: 0 (0, 0, 0, 0)
current file number: 0
current block number: 0
Up to now, I have not been able to make a backup copy on the tape.
Can anyone tell me what should be the default density param for my config ?
Any experince with this tape driver on similar config ?
Any further advice re the backup using star would be appreciated.
