list vdump tape contents

Hi all,

I have a vdump tape with multiple savesets and don't have a list of what is on the tape.

Anyone have a command or procedure to list the name of each vdump on the tape?

 

Also  I haven't figured out how to assign points in this "new" forum. How does one

do that ?

 

Regards,   John W.

   They have names?  (VMS BACKUP save sets have names, but that's not
vdump.)  If you want to see what's _in_ one, then ...

 

      man vrestore

Look for "-t" and/or "-l".  If there's more than one thing on the tape,
then I'd use a non-rewinding tape device, and repeat until it stops
working.

   I wouldn't lose any sleep over it, but I believe that the "Kudos!"
button (toward the left) has something to do with it.
