  • Veritas V9.1 - how to see the content of an old tape

    Hell all,

    I have Veritas V9.1, i have a full backup tape of January 2006, now in my Accounting Dept. want to pull some old data from it. I'm pretty sure the tape is in a good condition.
    I went to restore but obviously there are no date to restore for that tape, cause i just reinstall and reconfigure this Veritas in the new box.

    is there any way for me to see the contents of that old tape?

    thanks,
    P2nd

    No problem in doing that.
    Insert the tape into the drive, go to Devices tab, right click on the tape and choose Inventory.
    When the job will finish, you will be able to see in the Recovery tab the hosts and the folders on that tape.
    Good luck. Keep us posted.

      You will also need to catalog the tape to see it contents.

      The process of an inventory will mount the tape and read the media label from it.

      A catalog will then gather the other required info.

        You're right, of course. Without cataloging, one won't be able to see the data on the tape.
        Sorry if I mislead you, P2nd.
