An External SCSI Tape on a Sun Enterprise Server
"Not every shop running the Solaris Operating System has the resources -- or even the need -- for backup solutions like fancy tape auto-changers, libraries, or silos. Often all that is needed is a backup, or ufsdump, of the root file system, an important database, or the code from a small development project. In these cases, an external device such as a SCSI DDS tape drive will often suffice. The following information should aid in configuring your external device on most Sun Enterprise servers that have an external SCSI connection. This information applies to Solaris 7 OS or later versions.
