	I have a PowerEdge 8450 running Redhat Linux 7.1 with a PowerVault
120T LVD external tape drive.

	When I use tar or dump while the tape drive is in sequential mode,
the end of tape is reached but it does not automatically change the tape and
my backup fails.  Does anyone have an expect script that would do this?
