Verifying the files backed up by a dump command backup

You can verify a backup initiated by the dump command to ensure that all the files you wanted to back up are on the tape.

Steps

  1. From your client, preserve the output to the console by using a utility such as a script.
  2. List all the files in a backup by entering the following command:
    restore tf rst0a
  3. Compare the list to what you intended to back up.
  4. For more detailed verification, use the N option of the restore command.
