amcheckdump - check the results of an Amanda dump
[--timestamp|-t timestamp] [--verbose]
[-o configoption...] config
verifies Amanda dump images by reading them from storage
volume(s) and verifying that the images can be parsed by the appropriate
application (if available). For example, a GNUTAR image is passed to GNU Tar
for parsing, and any errors (e.g., corrupt or missing data) are noted.
The application runs on the most recent dump or, if --timestamp
specified, on the most recent dump with that timestamp. Note that the
verification is local to the Amanda server; if the dump application is not
available, or is configured differently on the server than on the client, then
the verification will most likely fail.
If a changer is available, it is used to load the required tapes. Otherwise, the
application interactively requests the tapes.
See the " CONFIGURATION OVERRIDE
" section in amanda
for information on the -o option.
