I've been getting started with backups and have found useful information about dump, tar, and mt in the archives of this list. For my purposes, tar will work better than dump, so I'm trying to run multiple sessions per tape using tar and the "mt fsf x/mt eom" commands to navigate my way around the sessions. My question is: is there a simple way to generate and index or catalog of the sessions on a tape when used in this way?
I use "mt eom" and tar my next session, but if I forget to write one down, I'm n-1 backup and I end up overwriting the "forgotten" session, so the ability to catalog first would be very helpful. Any info appreciated.
