AMRMTAPE(8)                                                        AMRMTAPE(8)




NAME

       amrmtape - remove a tape from the AMANDA database


SYNOPSIS

       amrmtape [-n] [-v] [-q] [-d] config label



DESCRIPTION

       Amrmtape  invalidates  the  contents  of an existing backup tape in the
       configuration database. This is meant as a recovery  mechanism  when  a
       good  backup  is  damaged either by faulty hardware or user error, e.g.
       the tape is eaten by the drive or is overwritten.


       See the amanda(8) man page for more details about AMANDA.



OPTIONS

       -n     Generate new tapelist and database files with label removed, but
              leave them in /tmp and do not update the original copies.


       -v     List  backups  of  hosts and disks that are being discarded. En-
              abled by default.


       -q     Opposite of -v.


       -d     Run in debugging mode so all executed commands are shown.



EXAMPLE

       Remove tape labeled DAILY034 from the DailySet1 configuration.

       # amrmtape DailySet1 DAILY034
