    Default Finding oldest file in an archive.

    hi
    I am trying to figure out the oldest file in an archive.
    When I try

    dsmc retr -pick /directory/path/

    I see only archive date.
    So, what I tried is restoring all files one-by-one and checking date time stamp on files.

    What is confusing me is that

    dsmc query archive /directory/path returns 333 files but if I do a

    select NODE_NAME,ARCHIVE_DATE,CLASS_NAME,FILESPACE_NAME,D ESCRIPTION from ARCHIVES where NODE_NAME='NODE' ORDER BY ARCHIVE_DATE

    and grep by date for date when /directory/path was archived, I get more results.

    Is there a way to query oldest file in an archive without restoring the archive?

    In GUI you see creation/last modification date
