    Default Multiple amvault to the same lto tape

    Hi,

    Is it possible to run multiple amvault to the same LTO 6 tape?

    Basic idea is to vaulting couple of smaller weekly or monthly backups from virtual tapes to the LTO 6 tape. Amanda is version 3.3.3 from CentOS 7 base repo, kernel support EOT, drive is HP LTO Ultrium 6 (no-rewind, /dev/nst0).

    I use this command:

    Code:
    amvault --src-timestamp latest --dst-changer tape:/dev/nst0 \
    --autolabel any --label-template archive-%%% \
    -olabelstr='^archive-[0-9][0-9][0-9]$' monthly
    and this use about of 30% uncompressed tape space. I want to fill this tape until to the end running same command from month to month.
    If this is possible, must I use mt command to rewind/forward/backward positioning to the last file mark or amvault take care about this?

    Thanks and regards,

    Is not so true... After trying to vault next backup with same command I saw message 'No acceptable volumes found', and in log I found this line: 'INFO taper Slot 1 with label archive-001 is not reusable'?!

    So, it is not possible to append backup to real tape using amvault?
