By the way how do I do a summary, then send to all sunmanagers' list? Here I
am editing a new mail, which is not what I want.
Thank you very much to all. Especially those who spared their time to help me.
I got mails within minutes which pointed either using the "mt" command with
the "fsf" option to move the header to the correct position or "ufsrestore"
with the "-s" option to get to the same position as with "mt" command. i.e.

# mt rewind
# mt -f /dev/rmt/0n  fsf  3
# ufsrestore -if   /dev/rmt/0

# mt rewind
# ufsrestore -is  4

My orginal question was:

>I use ufsdump to backup solaria 8 file systems on one tape. Of late I
> wanted to go the restore procedure preparedness using ufsrestore. When
> I do "ufsstore itf /dev/rmt/0" I get root (/) file system listing
> only. If I run "ufsrestore vt /dev/rmt/0", I get "Level 0 dump of / on
