I'm trying to configure Amanda in my system (actualy with ARCServe 9), but I'm having some dificulties with amtapetype. My system is:

Hardware: Dell PowerEdge 1600SC
OS: SuSE Linux Enterprise 8 (32 bits)
Tape Device: Dell Power Vault 110T DLT VS 80
Amanda: 2.5.2-20070525

When I use tapetype, I'm getting the follow error message:

$ amtapetype -o -e 40g -f /dev/nst0 -t "DELL_POWERVAULT_110T_DLT_VS_80"
Estimate phase 1...amtapetype: could not write any data in this pass: Invalid argument

Amchek is OK:

$ amcheck diario

How can I solve this?

Thanks!
