Defines the command used to write data to remote tape devices.

Syntax: copy_out_cmd = <cmd>

Default: None

You must enter a value before you switch to "remote piping".

This parameter specification is only useful in combination with the parameter remote_host and remote_user for performing backups on remote systems.

copy_out_cmd = "dd bs=50k of=$" ,

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.
