SYNOPSISnwarchive [ -s server ] [ <X-args> ]
DESCRIPTIONnwarchive 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.
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.
