How to use dd to read off tape in IRIX?
Posted on 2006-11-03
I have an old IRIX SGI server that has backups done on NetWorker. I may not be able to recreate the volumes needed to restore with NetWorker (you have to restore back to the original location as best I can tell). So, how would I go about using dd to read off the tape and stream the output to another location? Is that even feasible?
