I have a problem -- I am running AIX v4.3.2 and have been performing
savevg commands nightly. Specifically, I have been issuing this command
from a root crontab entry:
0 3 * * * /usr/bin/savevg -f'/dev/rmt0' '-v' '-i' '-X' dominovg1
I want to restore a single file from one of the tape backups created
with this command, unfortunately it doesn't seem to work. I have tried
typing in the exact path, just the filename, and made sure
capitalization is correct. As far as I know there are no problems with
the tape and I am not getting any specific error messages other than
"Tape restore failed" after waiting 45 minutes for the entire tape to be
read in. It is like it isn't finding my files.
If you have any advice, I'd greatly appreciate it. Surely it is not
necessary for me to restore the entire volume group just to get back one
