If you are not absolutely sure what files are missing, restore from ignite!

Hope this helps!

Re: /dev/vgoo

So you can either boot directly from tape (select bootable file from EFI menu) or boot from install DVD and point the installer to the tape device.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: /dev/vgoo

Hi,
Procedure for recovering files from ignite is.

extract a file from an Ignite image
Tue, 01/01/2008 - 18:46 â liquid
Assume I have an archive:
$ archive=/var/opt/ignite/archives/iux11i32bit.gz

And I want to extract this file from it:
$ NameNarc=opt/hpws/util/ports.sh

I check to be sure the file is in the archive:
$ gzcat iux11i32bit.gz | tar -tvf - | grep ${NameNarc}
r-xr-xr-x 2/2 8094 Oct 9 16:56 2004 opt/hpws/util/ports.sh

I want to extract the file into a temporary location and with a different name:
$ NameNtmp=/tmp/dog.sh

So I use the following command:
$ gzcat ${archive} | pax -s,${NameNarc},${NameNtmp}, -rvf - ${NameNarc}
USTAR format archive
/tmp/dog.sh

AI have my original file from the archive in a new location, with a new name:
$ ls -aol ${NameNtmp}
-r-xr-xr-x 1 jpkole 8094 Oct 9 2004 /tmp/dog.sh
=========================================================


to extract any ignite use below coomand, it will extract complete image with its file structure
gzcat 2010-07-01,02:30| tar -xvf -
