cpio: I/O error on output, errno 5, I/O error
: We sometimes get this when doing a cpio backup.
: It often comes in the middle (cpio has gone fine for a while
: but then this error message appears). Any guesses
: which could cause this? Bad tapes (have changed), dirty
: tape drive (have been cleaned) what else? Tape drive
: is exabyte 5GB and OS is Pyramid SVR4.1.
How old is the tape drive? I found from past experience that
after a couple years of use (at a few hours a day) the heads
need to be replaced.
