I am assuming you are talking about Netbackup here. Depending on how it 
was configured it may very well have used common tar. So first off try 
the GNU tar. But if Netbackup ran on a Solaris box then it may have 
used solaris tar which is somewhat different to gnu. In that case see 
if you can find a solaris box with a tape unit attached (BTW doesn't 
have to be SPARC, x86 solaris will do just as well).
