help with tar
i am trying to tar from 1 machine to another; it tries to write
to tape. i must be keying something in wrong but i am not sure
Desc: The customer is attempting to tar from one system to another
system using rsh. I have tried this procedure and I am able to
perform the action.
LocalSystem: tar -cvf - /localdir | rsh zcmds "tar -xvf -"
Note: This will tar the files in /localdir and send the output
to the remote system via rsh and then untar the files and place
them in /localdir on the remote system. Several items must be
setup in order for this to work. You must have .rhosts files on both
systems with identical user names in both files allowing the local system
to communicate with the remote system. Also the directory permissions
must allow the remote system read/write permissions and also the
umask must be set correctly.
