Dmesg shows nothing revealing.

I am not using tape -- I'm restoring from a file.

Does it only work with tapes?  I didn't recall it saying so.

dmesg ...

see anything?

Under what circumstances should this work?  Or does it work?

it used to work for me, i've not tried it recently though, i basically
gave up tapes (and xfsdump/restore) some time back due to size/cost

Do you not keep backups at all anymore? Or if you do, do you not care about the metastuff?
Only other backup util, that I know of, that speaks meta, is 'star'.
