Re: recover file from DDS4 tape using frecover

Your tape may not be an fbackup tape?
It may need to be rewound.


Dit you try to recover via sam, sometimes this (for me to unknown reason) that wil work after the command line gives this error...

Re: recover file from DDS4 tape using frecover

fbackup created on 11.31 isn't compatible with frestore on 11.11.
I'm not sure if there is an option to change this?

This is mentioned in fbackup(1m) WARNINGS on 11.31. It also says the command is: TO BE OBSOLETED
