NAME
       amrmtape	- remove a tape	from the Amanda	database

SYNOPSIS
       amrmtape	[--changer changer-name] [--cleanup] [--dryrun]	[-n] [--erase]
		[--keep-label] [--quiet] [-q] [--verbose] [-v] config label

DESCRIPTION
       Amrmtape	invalidates the	contents of an existing	backup tape in the
       configuration database. This is meant as	a recovery mechanism when a
       good backup is damaged either by	faulty hardware	or user	error, e.g.
       the tape	is eaten by the	drive or is overwritten.

       See the amanda(8) man page for more details about Amanda.

OPTIONS
       --changer changer-name
	   Specify which changer to use	when erasing label

       --cleanup
	   Remove logs and indexes associated with label. Otherwise, they'll
	   remain until	the next run of	amdump.

       --dryrun, -n
	   Generate new	tapelist(5) and	database files with label removed, but
	   leave them in /tmp and do not update	the original copies.

       --erase
	   Attempt to erase the	data contained on the volume with the given
	   label. This requires	that Amanda be able to find that volume	using
	   the tape changer. Erasure is	not supported by all Amanda devices,
	   and the erasure is not "secure" in the sense	that the data can most
	   likely be recovered by someone with the right tools.

       --keep-label
	   Do not remove label from the	tapelist.

       --verbose, -v
	   List	backups	of hosts and disks that	are being discarded. Enabled
	   by default.

       --quiet,	-q
	   Opposite of -v.

EXAMPLE
       Remove tape labeled DAILY034 from the DailySet1 configuration.
       # amrmtape DailySet1 DAILY034
