Normally this should work, however, it's a little hard to guess what's
happening without the real commands you are running, and without the
output from xfsdump.

One thing though ... is "/path/name" actually "/dev/tape" or some other
"/dev" device?  xfsdump does a little sanity check on the path, and it
expects to see "/dev/".

You could try adding '-v5' to xfsdump to get lots of debug output, also
try setting the "RMTDEBUG" environment variable to "2" to get librmt debug
