FWIW -- in the past I've had to pipe through dd on the remote machine to
get dump-to-tape to work. This was using tar and dump commands though...
command looked soemthign like:
tar zcvf - /dir | ssh $taper dd of=/dev/tape

Forgot to reply also to list.. some more followups...
It seems that it can't tell what blocksize the device is.. but DLT is
variable-length blocksize. I am using the syntax:
# xfsdump -v5 -f root@spoonman:/dev/st1 /boot
On the server attached to the DLT I see:
Jun 11 17:17:04 spoonman kernel: st1: Failed to read 1048576 byte block
with 245760 byte read.
