First, verify that you can read your device. This lists the table of contents:

cpio -ict < /dev/rmt0

Next, if your device is good, i'd like to ask what /dbs/10 is? If it's a file, you might try something like this:

cpio -icvdumB '/dbs/10' < /dev/rmt0

If it's a directory, maybe something like:

cpio -icvdumB '/dbs/10/*' < /dev/rmt0
