this night a RAID-System on our Legatoserver crashed with lot's of SCSI
errors. The backup stuck but else not much got wrong, but:

(Networker 6.1.4 on Solaris 9)

The labels ("volume" files) of 2 backup data partitions became identic:
The "volume" file of  I-206  is now an exact copy of the "volume" file
of IS-106.
I cannot mount I-206 because it's in wrong pool now. I cannot scan in
I-206, it says there's IS-106 before. I cannot scan I-206 without volume
How to fabricate a missing volume label?
