Cause: It isn't possible to perform a duplication using the output plugin. The reason for this is that this plugin is designed specifically to test channel throughput to a device and just generates a random stream of data. As the purpose of this is not really to actually write anything to a tape or disk no index is written, just a filemarker. To test a duplication you will have to use the filesystem plugin.
If you need to test a duplication you will have to use the filesystem plugin.
