    Default Non-Amanda tape...

    Hi everyone.
    I got another problem with Amanda and magnetic tapes.
    Inserted a clean (never used!) new DAT320 tape in my streamer, tried to label it but got the following error. What is it now and how can I force Amanda to make a label in my tape?..

    Code:
    #mt rewind
    #sudo -u amandabackup amlabel Taper DAT320_01
    labeling tape in slot 2 (tape:/dev/sa0):
    Reading label...
    Found a non-Amanda tape.
    
    tape not labeled
    I tried to erase tape with
    Code:
    mt erase
    , but it was not much help...

    Hi,

    try:
    Code:
    amlabel <config> <labelstring> slot <slotnumber> -f
    Code:
    amlabel monthly mon-022 slot 22 -f
    You can find out in which slot your tape is by typing:
    Code:
    mtx -f /dev/sg1 status
    If your changer is /dev/sg1

    Regards,
