Telling BRU What Device to Use: (-f device)

The -f option is used to specify the archive device. If the -f option is not used, BRU will use the first device listed in the brutab file. The example below will create an archive from the files in the /usr/src directory, using a tape inserted into the drive named tape0. The -f option requires a parameter.

cd /usr/src
bru -c -f tape0
