slot 7: date X        label disk-7
slot 8: date X        label disk-8

slot 14: date X        label disk-14

slot 19: date X        label disk-19
slot 20: date X        label disk-20
slot 21: date X        label disk-21
slot 22: date X        label disk-22

slot 24: date X        label disk-24

Use this to load the tape in to the tape drive:

-bash-3.00$ amtape  disk slot 4
amtape: changed to slot 4 on file://var/lib/amanda/vtapes/disk

Rewind the tape:

ammt -f file://var/lib/amanda/vtapes/disk rewind

Use this to get the table of contents of the tape including hostname, file system, dumptype, date, and backup level:

-bash-3.00$ ammt -f file://var/lib/amanda/vtapes/disk fsf 1
-bash-3.00$ amdd if=file://var/lib/amanda/vtapes/disk bs=32k count=1
AMANDA: FILE 20060504121020 /etc  lev 1 comp .gz program /bin/tar
To restore, position tape at start of file and run:
       dd if=<tape> bs=32k skip=1 |   /bin/gzip -dc | /bin/tar -f - ...
