 Hi Dieter,

 please use rear-1.17 instead as it contains fixes for EMC Networker 8x.
 To work with NSR you should better use the following:
 in site.conf. Like that it will only create an ISO image and take a 
 backup of the ISO image via NSR. No tar archive should be created with 
 'rear mkrescue' or 'rear mkbackup'
