db2tapemgr problem

P: n/a
Hi, list. I have a problem using db2tapemgr on db2/Linux. I want to
test the log archive into a tape device and its removal from disk by
using db2tapemgr but this is the problem I get:
db2tapemgr db lnxges store on /dev/rtibm0 force eject
Parameter error. Reason: "DBT2112N Device "/dev/rtibm0" is not a tape
device.".

This is specially strange since /dev/rtibm0 IS a tape device. For
example, I can tar a file into tape with no problem at all (same user:
db2inst1):
l
total 8742968
drwxrwxr-x 4 db2inst1 db2grp1 4096 2007-03-19 18:17 ./
drwxr-x--- 7 db2inst1 db2grp1 4096 2006-06-02 08:42 ../
-rw-r----- 1 db2inst1 db2grp1 438873 2007-03-07 16:16
db2rbind.log
whoami
db2inst1
tar -cvf /dev/rtibm0 db2rbind.log
db2rbind.log
>
So, it's not a matter of permissions but for some reason db2tapemgr
does not recognize /dev/rtibm0 as a tape device. But I DO can use the
tape device e.g. using TAR. Therefore the /dev/rtibm0 tape device DOES
exist.

Does anyone know about this problem ?
Any help will be very welcome.

Thanks in advance,
