    The real question is: How do you retrieve from a specific hosts' lmfs
    backup dump?

If you dump the LMFS from several machines onto one Exabyte tape then
you can't retrieve the LMFS from just one of the machines.  I backed up
two of our machines onto a single 8mm tape using an Exabyte EXB-8200
drive. When I listed the contents of the tape, what I saw was a single
LMFS dump which contained the LMFS of both machines.
