Tape Backup

Enterprise Tape backup can be performed with Debian Linux and packages like Amanda or Bacula or similar. The Linux tape system can be configured using the program stinit from the package mt-st . Stinit reads the configuration file /etc/stinit.def. The tape is then normally addressed as /dev/st0 for the 1st device and /dev/st1 for the second device and so on. The tape can also be addressed in a non rewinding mode normally by addressing the device as /dev/nst0 , /dev/nst1 etc.
