NAME


 bscan - Bacula's 'Scan tape' 

SYNOPSIS

bscan[options]bacula-archive
 

DESCRIPTION

The purpose of bscan is to read (scan) a Bacula Volume and to recreateor update the database contents with the information found on the Volume.This is done in a non-destructive way. This permits restoring databaseentries that have been lost by pruning, purging, deleting, or a databasecorruption problem.
 

Normally, it should not be necessary to run the bscan command becausethe database is self maintaining, and most corrupted databases can berepaired by the tools provided by the database vendors.In addition, if you have maintained bootstrap files during backups, youshould be able to recover all your data from the bootstrap file without needed an up to date catalog.
