Moving a tape to the end of data

You move a tape to the end of data if you want to append data on a tape.

Step

  1. Enter the following command:
    mt -f device eom

    device is the name of a no-rewind tape device.

Example

mt -f nrst0a eom

Note: If you use a rewind or unload/reload tape device, this command rewinds the device, moves the tape to the beginning of data, and unloads it, if possible.
