NAME

       nwrecover - NetWorker graphical recover interface


SYNOPSIS

       nwrecover  [  -s  server  ]  [  -c client ] [ -x index namespace ] [ -T
       browse time | "l locale_date" ] [ <X-args> ]  [ path ]


DESCRIPTION

       nwrecover is an X Window System application.  It  is  used  to  recover
       lost  files that have been saved with NetWorker.  If you are running in
       a non-X11 environment, recover(8) can be used to recover files.

       The server's name can be specified with the -s server  argument.   When
       no server is specified, nwrecover uses the server selection rules found
       in nsr(8).  When multiple NetWorker servers are accessible, they can be
       selected  from  within  the  nwrecover  command.  If path is specified,
       nwrecover will attempt to initialize the current selection to the given
       path.   The default attempted selection if path is not specified is the
       current working directory.

       If you are recovering files that were saved with Access  Control  Lists
       (ACLs),  you  need  to  be  root or the file owner to recover the file.
       Files with an ACL have a trailing '+'  (e.g.,  -rw-r--r--+)  after  the
       mode  bits when viewing file details.  See recover(8) for more informa-
       tion about ACLs.

       There are three basic steps to recover a lost  file:  (1)  Browse  Net-
       Worker's  index  in  the Recover window to find the lost file, (2) Mark
       the file for recovery by selecting  its  checkbox  and  (3)  Start  the
       recovery.   In  addition,  there  are  recover  commands for relocating
       recovered files (Relocate), finding past versions of a file (Versions),
       changing  the  browse  time (Change Browse Time), showing the files you
       have marked for recovery (Show Marked),  and  overwriting  or  renaming
       recovered files that are in conflict with existing files (Conflict Res-
       olution).

       Opening the Recover window connects the  client  to  its  file  indexes
       maintained on the server. The entries in the index represent previously
       saved files and are organized exactly like  the  filesystem.  The  file
       index  is  created  in  the backup index namespace when files are saved
       with save(8).  If files are saved into an  index-storing  archive  pool
       using  nsrarchive(8),  the  file  index is created in the archive index
       namespace.  nwrecover offers command for changing the  index  namespace
       being  browsed  (Change  Index  Namespace).   To  browse  the index for
       another filesystem, enter the pathname in the Selection field.

       To browse the index: Use the Recover window View  menu  to  select  the
       browsing  level  of your directories. Use the mouse to open a directory
       and display its contents.

       To mark files: After you have located your files by browsing the index,
       mark the files you want to recover by selecting their checkboxes.   You
       can  also  highlight  a file and use the Mark command from the Selected
       menu to mark files.

       To start the recovery: Select the Start recover command from  the  File
       menu.  The  Recover  Options  dialog box appears, where you indicate to
       NetWorker what to do when a conflict occurs between  a  recovered  file
       and  an existing file. You select whether to be prompted for each indi-
       vidual conflict or to select one global resolution for  all  conflicts.
       Then,  indicate	to  NetWorker  whether you want to: Rename the recover
       file with a .R extension to preserve both files,	 Discard  the  recover
       file  and preserve the existing file, or Overwrite the existing file to
       preserve the recover file as the only copy of the file.

       Before starting the recovery, you have the  option  of  relocating  the
       recover files with the Relocate command. Enter the pathname of a new or
       existing directory in which to place your recovered files.

       After you press OK in the Conflict Resolution dialog box,  the  recover
       continues,  and  NetWorker automatically determines the media needed to
       complete the recovery, prompts the operator to  mount  the  media,  and
       executes  the  recovery.  You can monitor the status of the recovery in
       the Recover Status window.

       Before starting the recovery, you have the  option  of  relocating  the
       recover files with the Relocate command. Enter the pathname of a new or
       existing directory in which to place your recovered files.

       The Recover window also offers two commands for browsing the  index  in
       the  past.  Versions  shows  you  the entire backup history for a file.
       Change Browse Time allows you to change the time at which you are view-
       ing the on-line index.

       A  complete  explanation  of  the nwrecover command can be found in the
       NetWorker Administrator's Guide.


OPTIONS

       -s server
              Set the current NetWorker server to server.

       -c client
              Set the current NetWorker client index to browse to client.

       -x index namespace
              Set the current file index namespace  to  index  namespace.   By
              default the backup namespace is used. The other recognized index
              namespace is: archive.  This field is case sensitive.

       -T [ browse time | "l locale_date" ]
              Set the current index browse time to browse time (in 
              nsr_getdate(3) format), or locale_date format when
              "l locale_date" is specified.  Using this option is equivalent
              to using the change browse  time  dialog  within nwrecover. See
              recover(8) for more details on locale_date format supported.

       <X-args>
              Since it is an X-Windows	application,  nwrecover	 may  also  be
              invoked  with  various  arguments that are not specific to nwre-
              cover, but are generic X-Windows arguments.  For	instance,  you
              may  use	the  -d	 option	 in order to specify which display the
              nwrecover application should use. See "man X" or	your  system's
              X-Windows documentation for more details.
