Question backup NetApp using dump command

I have been trying to backup my NetApp /vol/vol0 data to local tape drive. It is around 68GB.
The tape I am using is DLT tape and should be able to handle 70GB data. However, dump always
aborted around reaching 57~58GB data.
Tape drive is attached on NetApp.

1st try to dump /vol/vol0 to local drive (68GB) => dump aborted
2nd try to dump /vol/vol0/home to local tape drive (59GB) =>dump aborted
Any idea?

Here are some info

Try the following (and read the man page for the options):

Instead of
rsh netmgtfs1 "dump 0uf nrst0a /vol/vol0/home"

use
rsh netmgtfs1 "dump 0bcuf 126 nrst0a /vol/vol0/home"

The native capacity of a DLT7000 is 35Gb. With compression on you can get a theoretical 70Gb but in real life much less. Your figure of 57-58Gb sounds about right, although it does depend on what you're backing up and how well it can be compressed.
