You will either need to use mt/mtx commands to access the autoloader or some
type tape software like arcserveit or amanda (in 7.2 is there and not too
sure of 7.1).

	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?
