Defines the command used to read data from remote tape devices.

Syntax: copy_in_cmd = <cmd>

Default value: None

You must enter a value before you switch to “remote piping,” that is, backup_dev_type = pipe|pipe_auto|pipe_box. For more information, see backup_dev_type.

This parameter specification is only useful in combination with parameters remote_host and remote_user for reading from remote systems.

copy_in_cmd = "dd bs=5ok if=$",

However, you can also use higher blocking to improve performance. The $ character is replaced by the device address. Do not forget to enclose the parameter specifications composed of several values in double quotes.
