After the backup,how to read the content of the tape.

Sorry :-) I'm very-very new to Tru64.

Re: read a content of the tape

# man dump
at the bottom of the man-page:
"see also commands restore"

so it seems "restore" is the command you are looking for ;-)

Re: read a content of the tape

I have to tell you that dump/restore commands are not supported anymore. You have to use vdump/vrestore.

Any way, if you checked the man pages (man vrestore), you will find that you can get into an interactive shell and look at the files on the tape and choose which to restore:
#vrestore -i -f tape_device
commands you can use in the vrestore interactive shell are: ls , add , extract , exit ......

HTH
