NAME

backup_listdumps - Displays the dump hierarchy from the Backup Database

SYNOPSIS

backup listdumps [-localauth] [-cell <cell name>] [-config <configuration file>] [-help]

DESCRIPTION

The backup listdumps command displays the dump hierarchy from the Backup Database.

OPTIONS

-localauth

Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local /etc/yfs/server/KeyFileExt file. The backup command interpreter presents it to the Backup Server, Volume Server and VL Server during mutual authentication. Do not combine this flag with the -cell argument. For more details, see backup(8).

-cell <cell name>

Names the cell in which to run the command. Do not combine this argument with the -localauth flag. For more details, see backup(8).

-config <configuration file>

Sets the location of the configuration file to be used. The default file is /etc/yfs/yfs-client.conf.

-help

Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.

OUTPUT

The output displays the complete dump hierarchy and indicates the relationship between full and incremental dump levels. Full dump levels appear at the left margin. The hierarchy can include more than one full dump level; each one defines a subhierarchy of dump levels that can be used for dumping different volume sets.

Incremental dump levels appear below and indented to the right of their parent dump levels, which can be either full or incremental. Since multiple incremental dump levels can share the same parent, an incremental dump level is not always directly below its parent; the amount of indentation indicates the parent/child relationship.

If a dump level has an associated expiration date, it appears along with the level name. Absolute expiration dates appear in the format

   <dump_level> expires at <day month date time year>

and relative expiration dates in the format

   <dump_level> expires in {<years>y | <months>m | <days>d}

to indicate the number of years, months, days, or combination of the three after creation a dump expires when created at this level.

EXAMPLES

The following example depicts six dump hierarchies. The expiration date for all incremental dump levels is 13 days so that the corresponding tapes can be recycled two weeks after their creation. The expiration dates for all full dump levels is 27 days so that the corresponding tapes can be recycled four weeks after their creation.
