Loading from a Multifile Volume

When you load a database dump from a volume that contains multiple dump files, specify the dump file name.

If you specify only the database name, Backup Server loads the first dump file into the specified database.

For example, this command loads the first dump file from the tape into pubs2, regardless of whether that dump file contains data from pubs2:
load database pubs2 from "/dev/rdsk/clt3d0s6"

To avoid this problem, specify a unique dump file name each time you dump or load data. To get information about the dump files on a given tape, use the listonly = full option of load database.
