Meaning of mount /dev/dsk/c... /mnt

Hi
May I know the meaning of the following command

Code:
mount /dev/dsk/c1t0d0s3  /mnt

Will I be able to use my tape drive after that?

Thanks

It attempts to mount the device /dev/dsk/c1t0d0s3 onto /mnt. You haven't specified any filesystem type, hopefully it can autodetect.

Only you can tell whether that's the correct disk or not unfortunately. And how to restore from tape depends on how you made the backup.

used the tar command for etc backup. is it possible to restore?
# 4  
Perhaps. It depends on how you ran tar, but maybe: tar -C /path/to/whereImounted -xf /path/to/tapedev /etc which should extract /etc from the tape and put it into /path/to/whereImounted
