Using tape Library PV114x or other with Linux

It is dead simple, make sure that when you plug in SAS cable the light on the SAS card comes up, I spent hours in struggling on Linux when drives did not appear and finally when i push the SAS connector bit inside all flashes 🙂

You only need a software name mt and tar which most of Linux OS already have.. It works same on Ubuntu and or Centos /Redhat flavours.

Replace /dev/st0 with your actual tape drive name.  Usually it is name like /dev/st0 /dev/st1 and so on ..

Rewind tape drive:

Backup any folder:

Display list of files on tape drive:

Restore /anyfolder directory:


Unload the tape:

Display status information about the tape unit:

Erase the tape:

You can go BACKWARD or FORWARD on tape with mt command itself:

(a) Go to end of data:

(b) Goto previous record:

(c) Forward record:

To compare tape backup, enter:

To restore tape in case of data loss or hard disk failure:


d : find differences between archive and file system
x : extract files from an archive
l : list the contents of an archive
p : ignore umask when extracting files
M : create/list/extract multi-volume archive (multiple tapes)
z : Compress backup using gzip
v : verbosely list files processed
f /dev/st0 : Tape device name
/anyfolder : Backup /anyfolder file system
