Changing Dump Volumes

(On UNIX systems) The Backup Server requests a volume change when the tape capacity has been reached. After mounting another volume, the operator notifies the Backup Server by executing the sp_volchanged system procedure on any SAP ASE server that can communicate with the Backup Server.

If the Backup Server detects a problem with the currently mounted volume (for example, if the wrong volume is mounted), it requests a volume change by sending messages to either the client or its operator console. The operator responds to these messages with the sp_volchanged system procedure.
