LIST_TAPE(1)							  LIST_TAPE(1)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     List_tape - list the contents of a	given backup tape

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     List_tape [ -v ] [	-h hostname ] [	-t tapedevice ]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The List_tape command lists the contents of a system backup tape made
     with Backup(1), cpio(1), tar(1), or bru(1).

     If	a tape drive attached to a remote host is used,	 the name of the
     remote host needs to be specified with the	-h hostname option on the
     command line.  For	remote listing to successfully work, the user should
     have a TCP/IP network connection to the remote host and also have "guest"
     rsh privileges on that host.

     If	the local or remote tape device	is pointed to by a device file other
     than /dev/tape, the device	should be specified by the -t tapedevice
     option.  The -v option performs a verify pass, comparing the files	in the
     backup with the files in the filesystem.  This requires that either the
     files have	a full pathname	in the archive ( Backup	uses relative
     pathnames), or that the label file	be present, with the directory in the
     last field	on the label: line, or that the	List_tape command be used in
     the same directory	where the backup was made.

     The List_tape command only	works with the formats mentioned above and
     displays the extra	info added by Backup(1)	or the system backup tool, if
