index of backup

[ Edited ]

Wondering how to produce an index of a tape after a backup is complete. I'm using fbackup in case you need to know.

Hi Ken,

I hopefully gave you the answer you need in your other post at http://forums.itrc.hp.com/cm/QuestionAnswer/1,,0x9bc2e7726eccd5118ff10090279cd0f9,00.html

Re: index of backup

Hi Ken,

one option is to keep the logfile when performing fbackup ;-)
afterwards "frecover -I yourfile -f /dev/rmt/0m" will put a list of files in "yourfile".

Re: index of backup

Hi,

Besides using
'frecover -I /tmp/file_index -f /dev/rmt/0m'
you can also use the -V option to get some
other valuable information from the tape
that is called the tape header. Try it
yourself.
'frecover -V /tmp/file_header -f /dev/rmt0m'

Attached is a tried and tested fabckup script
that takes care of itself. Change what you
need for e-mail output. Indexes are built
into the script.
