Are you planning to install VMS onto a clean
disk, or are you planning to restore an old
(/IMAGE?) BACKUP tape?

Re: restore tape

Hi azeemunix4,

Looks like you are planning to restore OpenVMS from a backup saveset on tape.

Commands-
$ MOUNT/FOR
$ BACKUP/IMAGE :/SAVE

Check the DCL help for more details -
$ HELP MOUNT/FOREIGN
$ HELP BACKUP/IMAGE

Are you using ABS/MDMS for the backup's ??
If yes, then you have execute the ABS/MDMS RESTORE request corresponding to the IMAGE restore of the OpenVMS saveset.

Good luck with your installation.

Re: restore tape

Hi azeemunix4,

Check out the following link -
http://www.microvax2.org/files/backups.pdf

This document talks about BACKUP/RESTORE operations on VAX systems.
Check out the section "Procedure for Restoring data or images from tape to disk:"

Hope this helps.

Hi,

>> [...] i have to installation microvax

Image restore will initialize the disk. If you are restoring it on to the disk containing some user data then the data will be initialized.
