    Unanswered: Backup made with ontape

    Hi all,

    I have some tapes with backups from ontape. Don't know anything else about the backups, like IDS version or database schema. The servers that made the backups don't exist anymore. How can I check the contents of the tapes, and if they are restorable?

    I only have a server with IDS 7.3. I checked archecker but it needs a schema, since I don't know nothing about the database I can't create it. What can I do?

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Regards

    Found out using dd that the backup was made in IDS 7.31.FD7.

    Tried to restore using IDS 7.31.UC7 but it doesn't work. How can I upgrade from UC7 to FD7 in Solaris?

    Thanks
