    Have the same error, with overall exit status 28,36 and 44. Maybe this helps to
    find the reason for this error. Maybe it is a problem running it together with
    xinetd.

    I had the same problem. The solution was to manually specify the cryptkey
    on the command line, i.e.

    full_backup -k /my/cryptkey ...

    Sorry, that's not quite true. The solution for me is to force full_backup not to
    use the stored key, but to use the compiled-in one. I just noticed that I had
    the wrong path passed to full_backup, i.e. -k /some/nonexistent/path. With
    the correct path, it does not work.

    I have the same problem and am unable to get any backups
    at all to work.

    My setup is with a Sun StoreEdge L1000 silo and four DLT
    drives. I have tried both the silo setup and /dev/nst0. I have
    done all that is suggested with the key, including recompiling
    to verify the key.

    I cannot do a backup! Please help.

    Scratch that last one. Was able to perform a full backup after
    fixing inetd.conf and HUP'ing inetd.

    New issue, must use /dev/nst0. Using =4@/dev/sg0#30^1. Is
    this syntax correct?
