Volume Names

Dump volumes are labeled according to the ANSI tape-labeling standard. The label includes the logical volume number and the position of the device within the stripe set.

During loads, Backup Server uses the tape label to verify that volumes are mounted in the correct order. This allows you to load from a smaller number of devices than you used at dump time.

Note: When dumping and loading across the network, you must specify the same number of stripe devices for each operation.
