any way to confirm a tape is bad and how to retrieve partial data?
NetBackup 7.01 on solaris 10
I have trouble restoring data from a tape. It keeps complaining about
cannot open ndmp device nrst2a, error code 16 (NDMP_NO_DEVICE_ERR)
I was able to use robtest to move the tape in and out of the drive. So I suspect it's the tape itself having problems. I have two questions:
1. Is there any way to confirm a tape is indeed bad?
2. If it's bad, is there a way to retrive partial data from the tape?
