Re: frecover

Use,

frecover -x -v -i /home/qfs/t.cf -f /dev/rmt/0mn

Here /dev/rmt/0mn is the device path for the tape drive.

Hope this helps.

Re: frecover

Hi

mkdir /tmp/local
cd /tmp/local
/etc/frecover -xvF -i/path1/filename1

The file will be restored under the local directory from the default drive.

Re: frecover

cd to the directory where you want files to be restored then use command
frecover -xXv -f /dev/rmt/0m
-i /directory/filename.
Index on tape can be found by frecover -I - -f /dev/rmt/0m (two dashes between I and f) or to index in to file frecover -I /tmp/filename -f /dev/rmt/0m

Easy to do this is by using sam!
