    Question Restoring from a tape from another server on another server and robot

    Good evening,

    I wonder if it is possible to recover data from a server that does not exist anymore, plus they were on tape, on another server using another robot?

    The robot is the same model TS3100

    If you have the DB for the old TSM server, yes.

    Just restore the DB.

    Not without the TSM Server database.
    Possible that one of the tapes is the backup of the TSM Server database?

    Good Luck,

    There is no tivoli guide for recovering normal TSM data tapes without a TSM database.
    It is not an officially supported method.

    With "dd" or some other block reader you could try to recover data.

    Unless the tapes are backupsets.
