Re: I need to restore just one file from a recovery tape.

Hello

I typed in the  following command from HP support

 

tar -xvf /dev/rmt/0mn .d1/CPD/SSMDIR

 

What I wan to happen is take the SSMDIR file from the tape device and put it in the d1/CPD directory on the HP 9000/800

 

Does not seem to work. I tried 4 backup tapes.  I am at a loss.

Does the file need to be deleted first or will this command overwrite the existing file?

 

I am not a UNIX person, so be kind when responding.

 

Thanks,

Dave
