Description of problem:
The standard Unix tape management utility, mt, is *not* included in EL6 Workstation or EL6 Client
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Affected releases are 6Client U0 and 6Workstation U0
Steps to Reproduce:
1. losetup `losetup -f` rhel-server-6.0-x86_64-dvd.iso
2. mount /dev/loop0 /mnt
3. find /mnt -name mt-st\*
It is a mistake to assume that only sys-admins performing backups need tape management tools. Engineers and analysts also need to load and create data tapes.
Please stop micromanaging the placement of historic Unix utilities.
Sorry, I meant to use this in Step #1
losetup `losetup -f` rhel-workstation-6.0-x86_64-dvd.iso
mt-st is included in the Optional channel for both Workstation and Client.
That helps, but not when installing air-gapped systems.
