how to scan the the content of the tape file

Postby kevinqsli » Fri Jun 05, 2015 2:10 pm

how to print the listing of files which backup in a tape file?

for example. I use adrdssu to backup the following files to test.tapeout1.
test.a
test.b
several days after, I forget what is in test.tapeout1.

You can do a trial restore run. Refer to manual for parameter needed to do this.
Save the output from this so that you do not need to do it again. And save the output from your next backup run.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Thanks Nicc. I searched in the "DFSMSdss Storage Administration Guide" but couldn't find any information related to 'trial restore'. Could you give me more hints? thanks a lot.

When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort
