    Lightbulb Unanswered: restore Logical log from disk

    I have tried using the pipe/uncompress, uncompress to file and then restore, backup to disk directly from ontape and always get the message that the file is corrupted. I have not changed the block size as I don't feel comfortable with that. It just takes a long time to restore an archive and then the Logical logs.

    I've had problems with the pipe/compress method also. What works for me:

    in the onconfig file:
    set TAPEDEV $INFORMIXSERVER.tape
    set TAPESIZE 2048000

    in one window: ontape -s -L 0


    When it asks for a second tape:
    open a second window:
    mv $INFORMIXSERVER.tape $INFORMIXSERVER.lvl0.tape1
    touch $INFORMIXSERVER.tape


    Press enter key in the firs window:

    repeat this until (incrementing the tape#) until the archive is complete. When it's complete, you can compress/gzip the tape files

    Does this method allow you to restore? I was mainly trying to do this backup/restore on the Logical Logs.
