Are you sure this is primary copy? Maybe it is copy 2 or copy 3?

please check with this command bpimmedia -mediaid 000042 

if there is FRAG 1 or FRAG 2 at the beginning

 

@quebek  thanks for the response!

 

yes l commanded the bpimmedia -mediaid 000026 (the tape is frozen)

 

the list was appeared with FRAG 1 and FRAG 2

Dear @quebek ,

which commands do l need to write with bpdublicate for copy images from frozen tape (000026) to a new tape (000028)?

here is this manual for bpduplicate https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/doc/123533878-127136857-0/v123537351-127136857

Looks like this backup Image is having another copy...
Run bpimagelist - backupid ak-mf-ipa-01.mf.int.mcc_1631841347
And show output

Dear @quebek

So this backup has two copies...
Do you need more?

2 copies are enough.

But when l  cmannd bpimmedia -mediaid 000028 ( destination tape). The output shows that "no entity was found"

It appears that copy 1 is on media @aaaae and another frag is on 000026. I don't see where the copy was done to 000028.

Hi @Tabriz 

As @DPeaco indicates you also have a copy of the backup in MSDP. You can use this to create a new copy if you need. The disk based copy was when you posted the picture the primary copy so this will be used as the source for the duplication by default. A command that will perform the duplication is

# bpduplicate -backupid ak-mf-ipa-01.mf.int.mcc_1631841347 -dstunit <tape STU name> 

You may also need or may want to add information regarding the volume pool to use (-dp <volume pool>) and if you want to collect logging information (-L <progress log>). Note the progress log will probably need to be located in a whitelisted location (typically use the user_ops folder under the NetBackup logs location).

Are there any other images on the frozen tape?
