Re: vrestore cmd using tapes

As menthioned before, you can only read with vrestore if you backed up the data with vdump.

Identify your tape device:

If V5:

hwmgr v d -cat tape


vrestore -tf /dev/ntape/tapeXc

Where X is the tape number. This will only work if you backed up the data with vdump, like this:

vdump -0uf /dev/ntape/tapeXc /usr
