       amflush - flush Amanda backup files from holding disk to tape

       amflush [ -f ] [ -D datestamp ]* config [ host [ disk ]* ]*

       Amflush	writes Amanda backups from the holding disks to tape, and updates the Amanda info
       database and tape list accordingly.  Backups may stay in a holding disk when something  is
       wrong  with  the  tape  at the time amdump is run.  When this happens, the problem must be
       corrected and amflush run by hand.

       -D datestamp specify a  datestamp expression you want to flush, see the "DATASTAMP EXPRES-
       SION"  section  of amanda(8) for a description.	-D 20001225-7 will flush all dump from 25
       december 2000 to 27 december 2000.

       You can specify many host/disk expressions, only disks that match an  expression  will  be
       flushed. All disk are flushed if no expression are given. see the "HOST & DISK EXPRESSION"
       section of amanda(8) for a description.

       Amflush	will  look  in	the  holding  disks  specified	by  the   amanda.conf	file   in
       /etc/amanda/config  for	any  non-empty	Amanda	work directories.  It then prompts you to
       select a directory or to process all of the directories.   The  work  directories  in  the
       holding disks are named by the date at the time amdump was run, e.g. 19910215.

       Amflush	normally detaches itself from the tty and runs as a background process.  With the
       -f option, amflush stays in the foreground.  This is useful if amflush is run as  part  of
       another script that, for example, advances the tape after the flush is completed.

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

       Amflush	will  search for holding areas associated with the PUCC configuration.	After you
       select which holding area to flush, amflush writes the data to tape, updates the databases
       and sends a mail report similar to amdump(8).

	      % amflush DailySet1
	      Scanning /amanda-hold...
		20001113: found Amanda directory.
		20001114: found Amanda directory.

		A. 20001113
		B. 20001114
	      Select directories to flush [A..B]: [ALL] all

	      Flushing dumps in 20001113, 20001114,
	      today: 20001117
	      to tape drive /dev/rmt/0mn.
	      Expecting tape DMP014 or a new tape.  (The last dumps were to tape DMP013)
	      Are you sure you want to do this? yes
	      Running in background, you can log off now.
	      You'll get mail when amflush is finished.
