AMVERIFY(8)			     System Manager's Manual			      AMVERIFY(8)

NAME
       amverify - check an Amanda tape for errors

SYNOPSIS
       amverify config [ slot [ runtapes ] ]

DESCRIPTION
       Amverify  reads an Amanda format tape and makes sure each backup image can be processed by
       amrestore and, if possible, the appropriate restore program (e.g. tar).

       Amverify runs amrestore on each file of the tape and pipes the output to a restore program
       (if  available)	with an option to create a catalogue of the backup.  The catalogue itself
       is discarded.  Only the success or failure of the operation itself is reported.

       If the backup image cannot be processed by the restore program, e.g. if it was written  on
       a  different  operating	system,  the  image  is sent through dd to /dev/null.  This still
       determines if the tape is readable, but does not do any internal consistency check on  the
       image.

       If  config  is  set  up to use a tape changer, the slot argument may be used to choose the
       first tape to process.  Otherwise, the current slot is used.

       The runtapes configuration parameter determines how many tapes are processed unless it  is
       specified on the command line.

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