NAME

       ammt - AMANDA version of mt

SYNOPSIS

       ammt [-d] [-f | -t | device] command [count]

DESCRIPTION

       Ammt provides just enough of the standard UNIX mt command for the needs
       of AMANDA. This is handy when doing a full restore and the standard  mt
       program has not yet been found.

       Ammt  also  provides  access  to the AMANDA output drivers that support
       various tape simulations.

       See the amanda(8) man page for  more  details  about  AMANDA.  See  the
       OUTPUT  DRIVERS section of amanda(8) for more information on the AMANDA
       output drivers.

       -d     Turn on debugging output.

       -f device
              Access  tape  device  device.  If  not   specified,   the   TAPE
              environment variable is used.

       -t device
              Same as -f.

       command count
              Which command to issue, and an optional count of operations.

              OFFLINE
                     Indicates the drive is offline or not ready.

              fileno Current tape file number.

              blkno  Current tape block number file.

              Note

              Many systems only report good data when a tape is in  the  drive
              and ready.
