obtar -z [ -f device ] [ -F file-number ]
You can specify a number of options with
obtar -z; this section describes those options that you are most likely to use. Refer to "obtar Options" to learn about additional
obtar -z options.
Example 4-29 causes
obtar to display the volume label for the fourth backup image on a volume loaded on device
# obtar -z -f tape1 -F 4 Volume label: Volume ID: VOL000105 Volume sequence: 1 Volume set owner: jane Volume set created: Tue Mar 2 10:13:14 2002 Backup image label: File number: 4 File section: 1 Owner: jane Client host: chicago Backup level: 0 S/w compression: no Archive created: Tue Mar 2 10:13:14 2002
When you use
obtar reads the backup image. Whenever
obtar reads a backup image, it positions the volume after the backup image just read, and before the label of the next backup image. For example, if you entered another
obtar -z command after the one shown in Example 4-29, then
obtar would display the label of backup image 5, if it exists, as shown in Example 4-30.
# obtar -zf tape0 Volume label: Volume ID: VOL000003 Volume sequence: 1 Volume set owner: gms Volume set created: Wed May 01 14:08:23 2000 Backup image label: File number: 5 File section: 1 Owner: gms Client host: campy Backup level: 0 S/w compression: no Archive created: Wed May 01 14:08:23 2000
