This is the newly-setup amanda 2.6.0p1, setup on Fedora Core 8. The tape drive is HP LTO3 400/800. The issue is there are quite a number of tapes created by amlabel, need to be re-cycle to use use for other purposes.

What is the exact command to erase the tape - format the tape header OR/AND tape content?
amrmtape is not more available.
