Dear All ,
I am very novice in the field of AIX so i require the command to backup the datavg on Tape.
I am currently using this command( Savevg -f /dev/rmt0 -V datavg)  but at somepoint it is hanging or the tape is full and it is not asking for another tape. My backup requires more than 2 tapes. I am using 32gb tape. The problem is it is not asking for another tape when the first tape is completed.Anyone help in this regard
