Unix Command

I'm trying to tar data files from a Concurrent System using RTU RealTime Unix using DAT format. My question is what is the command to verify the tape has copied the files.

tar tf /dev/<whatever>

Will tell you the list of files that made it to the tape and will also complain about any errors on the tape.  There is no way that I know of to do a 100% verify short of making a second tape and comparing the contents (with checksums, perhaps).
