[opensuse] Backup Data to a Remote Tape Drive
I'm looking for some help in backing up some data on a virtual machine to the
host's tape drive.

Searching the internet, I found this command:

# tar cvzf - /data | ssh root@host "cat > /dev/st0"

But, I would like to run the script from the host not on the guest vm.

I have limited space on the host and guest, so I'd like to "stream" the data to
the tape drive.

Thanks for any assistance.
