Solaris Common Messages and Troubleshooting Guide


Remove unneeded files from the hard disk or diskette until there is space for all the data you are writing. You also might move some directories onto another file system and create symbolic links accordingly. When a tape is full, continue on another one, use a higher-density setting, or obtain a higher-capacity tape.

To create multi-volume tapes or diskettes, use the pax(1) or cpio(1) command; tar(1) is still limited to a single volume.
