Re: recover: skipping empty ssid

If the original save save set still exist, you must specfy the CLONEID along with the SSID.

Besides that, what do you want to achieve?

  - To redirect the data, it could be a sequence issue. Try:

        recover -v -d "D:\rest" -S 4206392649/cloneid

  - To recover solely the directory, use:  

        recover -v -S 4206392649/cloneid -a "D:\rest"

To verify how may files are inside the save set, run

   mminfo -q "ssid=4206392649/cloneid" -r "client,name,savetime,level,ssid,cloneid,totalsize,nfiles"

To verfy, which files are inside the save set, load the tape and on the storage node, run the following command:

   scanner -n -i -S 4206392649 device

Hi Bingo,

Tape restoration from old tape (same data) has been completed. No error. Earlier we used "scanner -m -S <SSID> \\.\Tape1" (only m) on old tape and we were getting "Bad or missing record" while restoration. Later, we did "scanner -im -S <SSID> \\.\Tape1" and now, it completed tape restoration successfully. The discussion which i posted is the second retry from the different tapes.

Another thing is that we should clean the tape drives regularly.

FYI - "scanner -i -S <SSID> \\.\Tape1" is enough.

As NW knows that the file index info would not make sense without the media index info, it would recover the media db records if necessary.

BTW - if you already supply the SSID why would you scan what you already have 😉

Re: recover: skipping empty ssid

Usually we are using “–m” option because we need to restore whole saveset , not particular files & folders. Later, we used “-im”. Thanks for your suggestions.
