tar error exit delayed form pervious error


when use "tar cpvzf /dev/st0 --exclude=/proc --exclude-/lost+found --exclude=/mnt --exclude=/media --exclude=/sys /" to tape,
get the following message "tar: error exit delayed form pervious error",

What is the mean ? Please suggest some solution for these errors. thx

If you capture all of the output of the tar command, you will see that there are some errors or warnings at some point during the process.

That message is just there to tell you that you might have missed some errors, because frequently tar generates a lot of output to the screen and you can easily miss them. Consider redirecting stderr to a separate log file perhaps if you want to capture them (tar cpzf .... 2> /tmp/tar_errors).
