We have an IBM Power 710. It has a USB port on the front. I have done some searching and see that there is information out there on how to create a JFS2 file system on USB drives. A few have commented that they would not recommend it, if the server is important, may crash the server... Just... (0 Replies)

Linux admin here, forced to use Opensolaris to try to use ufsdump/ufsrestore to get some data of some old tapes.
I've got Opensolaris 2009.06 on x86 and a Sony SDX-700V.
As a "control" experiment, I booted the system with a Linux live CD and the tape drive worked perfectly.

amtape - Control Amanda changers
amtape [-o configoption...] config subcommand [subcommand_options...]
Amtape is the command-line interface to Amanda's tape changers (amanda-changers(7)) and to the taperscan algorithm (amanda-taperscan(7)).
Tape changers maintain a notion of the current slot for each configuration. This may or may not correspond to an actual physical state of
the device, but is used by some taperscan algorithms to minimize searching through the slots.
Amtape uses the default changer. To use a different changer, use the config override option, e.g., -otpchanger=otherchanger.
Search for and load the Amanda tape with label [label], also setting the current slot.
Load the volume in the given slot, also setting the current slot. The slot names current, next, first, and last have special meaning.
Shorthand for slot current.
Show the contents of all slots, based on the changer's cached metadata. This is a quick operation as it does not load or unload any
volumes, but is not supported by all changers.
Show the contents of all slots (or listed slots) by loading each slot and reading its label. This can be very slow. The slots arguments
is of the form 1,3-5,7.
Reset the changer to a known state. This subcommand is intended to clear any unknown and potentially incorrect state the changer may
Eject the tape currently in the drive. This only applies to some changers. Specify a drive (by drive number) if more than one drive is
If a cleaning tape is defined for the changer, used it to clean the specified drive. The [drive] is optional if the changer only has
Run the taperscan algorithm (see amanda-taperscan(7)), displaying information about the progress of the scan.
Update changer state. Consult amanda-changers(7) for changer-specific details on the format of what.
