AMMT(8) 										  AMMT(8)

       ammt - Amanda version of mt

       ammt [ -d ] [ -f|-t device ] command [ count ]

       Ammt  provides  just  enough  of the standard mt command for the needs of Amanda.  This is
       handy when doing a full restore and the standard mt program has not yet been found.

       Ammt also provides access to the Amanda output drivers that support various  tape  simula-

       See  the amanda(8) man page for more details about Amanda.  See the OUTPUT DRIVERS section
       of amanda(8) for more information on the Amanda output drivers.

       -d     Turn on debugging output.

       -f device
	      Access tape device device.  If not specified,  the  TAPE	environment  variable  is

       -t device
	      Same as -f.

       command count
	      Which command to issue, and an optional count of operations.

       Each command may be abbreviated to whatever length makes it unique.

       eof|weof count
	      Write count (default: 1) end of file marks (tapemarks).

       fsf count
	      Skip forward count (default: 1) files.

       bsf count
	      Skip backward count (default: 1) files.

       asf count
	      Position	to  file number count (default: 0) where zero is beginning of tape.  This
	      is the same as a rewind followed by a fsf count.

       rewind Rewind to beginning of tape.

	      Rewind to beginning of tape and unload the tape from the drive.

       status Report status information about the drive.  Which data reported, and what it means,
	      depends on the underlying operating system, and may include:

	      ONLINE Indicates the drive is online and ready.

		     Indicates the drive is offline or not ready.

	      BOT    Indicates the drive is at beginning of tape.

	      EOT    Indicates the drive is at end of tape.

		     Indicates the tape is write protected.

	      ds     Device status.

	      er     Error register.

	      fileno Current tape file number.

	      blkno  Current tape block number file.

	      NOTE: many systems only report good data when a tape is in the drive and ready.
