How do I restore files from a SPO tape.
RISC: 25T AIX: 3.2.5 CDROM: InforExplorer DataBase.
WINDOWS: X11 R5 TAPE: 8mm 2.3 gb
The customer can't run infoexplorer, the file /usr/bin/info
has been accidently deleted. The customer does not
have any system backups. He has never made a mksysb or
ever attempted to backup his /usr filesystem.
All the customer has is a 3.2.5 SPO tape that was
used to install the system. Is there a way to restore
the necessary files from the 3.2.5 SPO tape?
Yes that will be possbile.
