Displaying the image header of a tape

You can display the image header of a tape in a specific tape device by using the smtape restore command.


  1. To display the image header of a tape in a tape device, enter the following command:
    smtape restore -h tape_device

    h is the image header of a tape that is to be displayed.

    tape_device is the tape device that has the tape for which the image header is to be displayed.

    Note: The image header of tape backups created by using the snapmirror store command in releases earlier than Data ONTAP 7.3 can be read by using the smtape restore -h command.


The following example displays the header image of a tape in the tape drive rst1a:
filer> smtape restore -h rst1a
