I got a lot answer to my question on how to make several dumps to our exabyte,
without having the "old" files overwritten.

The "trick" is to use /dev/nrst# instead of /dev/rst#, which is explained
in the manual page for st [thanks arne]

You still get the message "Tape Rewinding", which can be ignored. The verify
option of dump is said to work as intended with the non-rewinding device.

Thanks to:,,,, and [I might
have missed someone, so thanks to you all! ;-]
