How to restore data from aix tar backup ?
Posted on 2001-08-28
I have a aix (RS6000 Server) backup using tar on a DDS3 dat. I want to extract it on a Solaris system. But when i fire tar tvf /dev/rmt/1, it gives me "tarL: directory checksum error".
The tar backup taken on aix has a block size of 1024 and it is a compressed backup.
I have tried the following options :
tar tbvf 1024 /dev/rmt/1
tar tbvf 1024 /dev/rmt/1cbn
but it gives me the same error.
Does anyone have a solution to this problem ?
