Hello
I want to do something like this.....

#!/bin/sh
for i in /dsk1 /dsk2 /dsk3
do
dump 0uCb 20m 32 $i
done

But after this has finished, the only dump on the tape is the last one. Question.....
How do I specify a no rewind option in IRIX, as in Solaris....
/dev/rmt/0lbn

or do I have to do something like this....

#!/bin/sh
skip=1
for i in /dsk1 /dsk2 /dsk3
do
dump 0uCb 20m 32 $i
mt fsf $skip
skip=`expr $skip + 1`
done

Hi...

The no rewind option for your situation is, instead of specifying /dev/tape or the default,
use /dev/nrtape (nr = no rewind) instead.
