The application runs on the most recent dump or, if --timestamp is specified, on the most recent dump with that timestamp. Note that the verification is local to the Amanda server; if the dump application is not available, or is configured differently on the server than on the client, then the verification will most likely fail.
If a changer is available, it is used to load the required tapes. Otherwise, the application interactively requests the tapes.
See the "CONFIGURATION OVERRIDE" section in amanda(8) for information on the -o option.
