This parameter defines the rewind command for your host operating system.
Syntax: rewind = <cmd>
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"
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.
