Hello,

I am trying to take a backup on LTO 4 tape drive using SLES11. The
command usage is "tar -cfz /dev/st0 /tape_test" where tape_test is the
folder I need to backup.
But it is giving following error.
tar: Removing leading `/' from member names
I searched the net for same error and found it is as a common error.
But couldn't find a solution as they were not specific to solve my issue
(LTO 4 tape on SLES 11).
ex: 'Linux Tar Getting Removing Leading `/' From Member Names When
Executed'
(http://www.wallpaperama.com/forums/l...uted-t711.html)
ex: 'tar: Removing leading `/ from member names | Skrakes.com'
(http://www.skrakes.com/2009/09/11/ta...m-member-names)

So I need help on resolving myne.
Thanks in advance.
