setting the DB parameters when restoring a DB is not necessary. I recommend the following procedure when restoring a DB from tape:
Make sure that your tape device is installed correctly and
you can access it (on Win e.g. with the backup program from administrative tools).
Furthermore Tamino must be installed and you must have defined your
locations (Tamino Manager --> Tamino --> Location Management).
DO NOT SET THE DEFAULT BACKUP LOCATION TO YOUR TAPE DEVICE !
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ RESTORING A TAMINO DATABASE FROM TAPE:
1.) start the Tamino Manager
2.) click on Icon “Tamino” --> "Databases"
3.) click on Button "Create Database"
4.) define Database name e.g. "mydb"
5.) click on Button "Next"
6.) select Backup Medium "Tape"
7.) click on Button “Browse” and select your tape device.
8.) click on Button "Next"
9.) select your Locations which you set up before (see prerequisites):
define Log location --> “Next”
define Logarchive location --> “Next”
define Temporary working locations --> “Next”
define Reserve locations --> “Next”
define Backup locations --> “Finish” DO NOT SELECT YOUR TAPE AS BACKUP LOCATION !
!!! IMMEDIATELY PRESS “Finish” AFTER SELECTING THE BACKUP LOCATION !!!
!!! DO NOT SELECT ANY DATABASE SIZE, JUST PRESS ON “Finish” !!!
NOW THE RESTORE PROCESS WILL START !
all the relevant information (parameters) will be read from tape.
