Message "Insert Media for File ..." when Validating or Restoring with Image for DOS or Image for Linux

Please note: This article applies to version 1 product(s) only.

Problem:

During an image validation or restore operation with Image for DOS or Image for Linux, you receive the following message:

Insert media for file [name of file].001

Cause:

If the specified image file is present at all, the problem may be related to the use of long file names (meaning the file name is greater than 8 characters, and/or includes one or more spaces).  That is, the problem may be that the short file name representations stored in the file system do not match for all the image files.

Solution:

If the image files in the set make use of long file names, rename each of the files using a short file name (but do not change the extensions).  For example, if you had an image file set with these long file names:

BACKUP OF OS - JANUARY.IMG
BACKUP OF OS - JANUARY.001
BACKUP OF OS - JANUARY.002


You would rename them to use short file names:

BAKOSJAN.IMG
BAKOSJAN.001
BAKOSJAN.002


One way to do this is with the RENAME command.  For example, the files listed above (e.g. BACKUP OF OS - JANUARY.IMG) could be renamed with the following command:

ren "BACKUP OF OS - JANUARY.*" BAKOSJAN.*
