Displaying detailed status output

You can get information about the progress of a restore on a file-by-file basis. If you have a restore problem, this output can be useful for your own diagnostics, as well as for technical support. Because of the volume of information that needs to be processed by a console, getting detailed output can slow down a restore considerably.

Step

  1. To get status information about each file recovered, use the v option in the restore command line.

    Note: This option does not take a parameter.

Example

The following command restores a backup and produces status information about each file recovered:

restore rfv rst0a

The following list describes the elements of the command line:
r
Performs a full restore.
f
Specifies that a tape device is supplied in the command line.
v
Produces information about each file recovered.
rst0a
The tape device.

The elements of this command line are described in the following table.
