This parameter defines the rewind/set offline command for your host operating system.
Syntax: rewind_offline = <cmd>
Default: The value of the rewind parameter is used.
Used by BRBACKUP and BRARCHIVE to rewind a tape after a backup and set it to offline. This means that the volume is automatically ejected from the tape device (even when you are backing up to a remote system using pipe or pipe_auto).
You could make the following entry, for example:
rewind_offline = "mt -f $ offline"
HP-UX: "mt -f $ offl"
AIX: "tctl -f $ offline"
Tru64, Linux, SUN, Windows: "mt -f $ offline"
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.
