       nwarchive - NetWorker graphical archive interface

       nwarchive [ -s server ] [ <X-args> ]

       nwarchive  is  an  X  Window  System application.  It is a front end to
       nsrarchive(8) and used to archive files to a NetWorker server on an  ad
       hoc basis.  Normally, files are archived automatically.

       The  server's  name may be specified with the -s server argument.  When
       no server is specified, nwarchive uses the server selection rules found
       in nsr(8).  When multiple NetWorker servers are accessible, they may be
       selected from within the nwarchive command.

       NetWorker supports both scheduled network-wide archives and manual  ar‐
       chives  of client system files and directories. To request an immediate
       manual archive, run nwarchive

       Check that the correct NetWorker server	is  selected.  The  Server  is
       identified in the Main window. (You can change servers using the Change
       Server command if necessary.) This is the Server to  which  the	client
       files  will  be	backed	up. The hostname of the current client is dis‐
       played in the Client field. The pathname of the	current	 directory  is
       displayed in the Selection field.

       Change directories by entering the full pathname in the Selection field
       or by highlighting the icon in the Archive window.

       To perform a manual archive, first mark the files and directories  that
       you  want  to  back up by selecting their checkboxes. Then select Start
       archive... from the File menu of the Archive window. You must enter  an
       annotation for the archive.

       Monitor	the  progress  of  the	archive	 in the Archive Status window.
       Check to see that an archive volume is mounted in the  Pending  display
       of the Main window.

       A  complete  explanation	 of  the nwarchive command may be found in the
       NetWorker Administrator's Guide, UNIX Version.

       -s server
	      Set the current NetWorker server to server.

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