Well, it seems I changed the wrong dump parameter! Most of you who are
successfully using Exabyte 8500 drives with dump doubled the Exabyte 8200 size
parameter, rather than the density parameter. Here's a reply which sums things
This is what we use for an 8500:
dump 0udsbf 54000 13000 126 /dev/nrst8 blah
For an 8200 we use this:
dump 0udsbf 54000 6000 126 /dev/nrst0 blah
Note that the size has been increased in the ratio 5:2.3 approx.
