AMRMTAPE(8) System Manager's Manual AMRMTAPE(8)
amrmtape - remove a tape from the Amanda database
amrmtape [ -n ] [ -v ] [ -q ] [ -d ] config label
Amrmtape invalidates the contents of an existing backup tape in the configuration database. This is meant as a recovery mechanism when a
good backup is damaged either by faulty hardware or user error, e.g. the tape is eaten by the drive or is overwritten.
See the amanda(8) man page for more details about Amanda.
-n Generate new tapelist and database files with label removed, but leave them in /tmp and do not update the original copies.
-v List backups of hosts and disks that are being discarded. Enabled by default.
-q Opposite of -v.
-d Run in debugging mode so all executed commands are shown.
Remove tape labeled DAILY034 from the DailySet1 configuration.
# amrmtape DailySet1 DAILY034
