amcheckdump - check the results of an Amanda dump
amcheckdump config [--timestamp|-t timestamp] [--verbose]
Amcheckdump verifies Amanda dump images by reading them from storage
volume(s) and verifying that the images can be parsed by the
appropriate application (if available). For example, a GNUTAR image is
passed to GNU Tar for parsing, and any errors (e.g., corrupt or missing
data) are noted.
The application runs on the most recent dump or, if --timestamp is
specified, on the most recent dump with that timestamp. Note that the
verification is local to the Amanda server; if the dump application is
not available, or is configured differently on the server than on the
client, then the verification will most likely fail.
If a changer is available, it is used to load the required tapes.
Otherwise, the application interactively requests the tapes.
See the "CONFIGURATION OVERRIDE" section in amanda(8) for information
on the -o option.
