This parameter defines the rewind command for your host operating system.

Syntax: rewind = <cmd>

Default: None

Used by the SAP tools to rewind a tape when a tape backup is performed.  This parameter is also used when you use pipe or pipe_auto to back up to a remote system or restore file from that system.

For example, you might enter:

rewind = "mt -f $ rewind"

Rewind commands:

HP-UX: "mt -f $ rew"

AIX: "tctl -f $ rewind"

Tru64, Linux, SUN, Windows: "mt -f $ rewind"

Make sure that you do not forget the double quotes when you enter parameters composed of several values.

The SAP tools replace the $ character with the address of the device used.
