amcheckdump − check the results of an Amanda dump

amcheckdump [−−timestamp|−t timestamp] [−−verbose]
[−o configoption...] config

     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.
