Original question:

I have Sun Enterprise 5000 running Solaris 2.6 with no patches. I'm
trying to clone dlt7000 tapes using Solstice Backup version 5.0.1. When
I try to clone a default tape to a default clone tape it writes 128KB to
the clone tape then stops, marks the 40GB tape full! I have to do a
nsr_shutdown and /etc/init.d/networker start in order to unmount the
default clone tape.


Two patches were required; 105658-03 - latest Solstice Backup 5.0.1
fixes, and 105847-01 - replaces /kernel/drv/st.conf.
