Recovering from archive volume

Recovering from archive volume
August 09, 2019 10:59AM
We are still on 8.2.x (moving to 9.x hopefully by the end of the year) and
I am testing command-line recover from an archive to make sure the archive
worked. I entered the command from the recovery directory as follows:

recover -b "LTO archive pool" -d /path/to/relocation

I then used the interactive session to add certain specific files, and when
I entered "volumes" it told me

Volumes needed (all had errors):
Unknown

The only way I was able to recover the archive was to recover the entire
archive using the -S ssid switch. Is this by design, or is there something
else I'm missing in my recover command?

Hi Jim,

I have seen similar problem (also on 8.2.x) after scanning an expired tape:

recover> recover
        Recovering 1 file from /home/XXX/ into /tmp/YYY
        Volumes needed:
                Unknown

- Fix for this was to run these commands in order to reconcile index
databases:

# nsrim -V volume -X
# nsrck -L6 client

Hope this helps,
Adnan

Just a quick note about the following:

That will be too late. Support for 9.x ends 31 December 2019. You
"hopefully" go to 18.x (2021), better yet 19.x (2022).

Cheers.
