This SP will dump all databases except pubs and tempdb to a tapedevice, regardless of how the tapedevice is named; the SP determines the name of the device. It also checks for the existence of a tapedevice and checks if multiple tapedevices are attached. The tape will be erased when dumping the first database, but only of retaindays > 1. You can easily modify this if you like. To dump all databases to a tape simply enter "sp_dump_userdb" or schedule this with SQLexecutive.
For SQL Server 6.5
