hope someone here can help me with this. I am a new unix system administrator on the HP-UX machine. Every night, our operators back up our file system using one tape but as of recently, our files have gotten bigger and it now requires 2 tapes for a complete backup. Since the operators are not always logged onto the machine to see how the backups are running, it seems like the not all teh backups get done. I only saw it this morning after looking at my mail. Is there a command or something that I can that will send a message to the operators when the backup process looks for a second tape. Hope my question makes some sense. Thanks for your time and help!!!!!
