Just a background, my volume group backup consumes 5 tapes. Backup using the "find . -print...." Now, I would like to restore a file which i know is from the 3rd tape. Using restore command restore -xvqf /dev/rmtx ./ /[filename] The system always ask for the first tape. Is there a restore command that can read directly to the 3rd tape?[/filename][/path]
