       amreindex - re-index tapes or specific dump


       amreindex [--timestamp|-t timestamp] [--verbose] [-o configoption...] config

       amreindex [--verbose] [--exact-match] [-o configoption...] config
                 [hostname [ disk [ date [ hostname [...] ] ] ]]


       Amreindex reindex Amanda dump images by reading them from storage volume(s) and passing it
       to the application for reindexing.

       Amreindex works in two different ways, it can works on all dumps of a single run or for a
       list of specified dumps.

       It reindex the dumps speficied on the command line or it reindex all dumps from the run
       specified by the timestamp (or latest run if no timestamp specified).

       If a changer is available, it is used to load the required tapes. Otherwise, the
       application interactively requests the tapes.

       Not all applications support reindexing.

       See the "CONFIGURATION OVERRIDE" section in amanda(8) for information on the -o option.
