Hi all, could you please help?

I am getting an error when I use the following command!

make_tape_recovery -vI -x inc_entire=vg00 -a /dev/rmt/0mn

At the botoom the error can be seen:

I believe your problem is that you have >2GB files attempting to be backed up.

You will need to exclude it in the arch file or compress it or move to tmp before igniting.
