WARNING: unable to read a volume header-EH AEH 2.1 has a problem with incremental backups in that an errror is produced.The inc.backup program checks if the tape is new and if it is it sends a warning that say something like 'this tape do not contain a volyme header'. This is no problem becuase a new tape should not contain a volym header, this header is created the first time you run a backup.
