frecover question

Hey everyone,

Just a quick question here but I how do I read files that I have just backed up. I use fbackup to backup and I don't want to restore any files onto my tape. All I wonna do is be able to read all the files on the tape that I just backed up. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Re: frecover question

You need to retrieve the INDEX.

frecover -I /tmp/INDEX -f /dev/rmt/0m (or whatever)

Check the file /tmp/INDEX for the list of files that were backed up.

Also, verify the man page for frecover for more details.

Re: frecover question

I believe the -I option will help you. When you specify -I, an index file is created at the path you specify and writes a line for each file backed up. It is not an automatic option. Hope this helps.
