AMRMTAPE(8) System Administration Commands AMRMTAPE(8)NAMEamrmtape - remove a tape from the Amanda database
SYNOPSISamrmtape [--changer changer-name] [--cleanup] [--dryrun] [-n] [--erase]
[--keep-label] [--quiet] [-q] [--verbose] [-v] config label
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.
Specify which changer to use when erasing label
Remove logs and indexes associated with label. Otherwise, they'll
remain until the next run of amdump.
Generate new tapelist(5) and database files with label removed, but
leave them in /tmp and do not update the original copies.
Attempt to erase the data contained on the volume with the given
label. This requires that Amanda be able to find that volume using
the tape changer. Erasure is not supported by all Amanda devices,
and the erasure is not "secure" in the sense that the data can most
likely be recovered by someone with the right tools.
Do not remove label from the tapelist.
List backups of hosts and disks that are being discarded. Enabled
Opposite of -v.
