AMMT

Section: (8)
Updated:

NAME

ammt - AMANDA version of mt 

SYNOPSIS

ammt [-d] [-f | -t | device] command [count]

 

DESCRIPTION

Ammt provides just enough of the standard UNIX mt command for the needs of AMANDA. This is handy when doing a full restore and the standard mt program has not yet been found.

Ammt also provides access to the AMANDA output drivers that support various tape simulations.

See the amanda(8) man page for more details about AMANDA. See the OUTPUT DRIVERS section of amanda(8) for more information on the AMANDA output drivers.
