Summary0001370: btape -c option does not work with storage configuration file
DescriptionI want to run btape on tapes which were written with a non-default blocksize of 1048576
I found out that I have to use option -c to specify this.
But when running $ btape -c /etc/bareos/bareos-dir.d/storage/Tape.conf
it fails with error:

Tape block granularity is 1024 bytes.
btape: ERROR TERMINATION at lib/
Config error: Keyword "Address" not permitted in this resource.
Perhaps you left the trailing brace off of the previous resource.
            : line 3, col 11 of file /etc/bareos/bareos-dir.d/storage/Tape.conf
  Address =

The documentation at
also does not say much about option -c and which configuration should be specified here.
It should be more specific.
TagsNo tags attached.
