On Restore to alternate location all ibays missing
« on: June 22, 2006, 11:22:17 AM »
Hi:

I'm trying to recover files deleted by a leaving employee at a client site. SME 6.0 on HP/Compaq/SMARTArray RAID. Have old tape that should have data.

Ran restore to alternate location using simple script mainly as per Darrell's old Howto as follows:

#! /bin/sh
# jr - 1st stab at restore from tape
# edit the file path below to point to the restore directory to save the tape content to
mkdir /home/e-smith/files/ibays/restore/files/try2/restore
cd /home/e-smith/files/ibays/restore/files/try2/restore
/bin/mt -f /dev/nst0 rewind
/bin/mt -f /dev/nst0 fsf 1
/usr/bin/flexbackup -extract
/bin/mt -f /dev/nst0 rewind

(Third line wraps here)

Restore apparently works OK but no ibays restored.

As far as I know this machine is an outofbox SME 6 install.

What dimness have I committed? (this time?) Err. Thinking aloud here. Should I create the restore path other than in an ibay? Oops.  

TIA

JR

Nope. Wasn't that. Any clue?
