       nwrecover - NetWorker graphical recover interface

       nwrecover  [  -s	 server	 ]  [  -c client ] [ -x index namespace ] [ -T
       browse time ] [ -p pass phrase ] [ <X-args> ] [ path ]

       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‐

       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: The tree view of entries shown in the Recover win‐
       dow  allows  you	 to browse through your files and directories. You may
       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.  Or,
       highlight a file and use the Mark command from the File	menu  to  mark
       files.  You  can	 list the files that you have marked for recovery with
       the Show Marked command from the View menu.

       To start the recovery: Select the Start recover command from  the  File
       menu. The Conflict Resolution 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  you indicate to NetWorker whether to Rename the recover file with
       a .R extension to preserve both files, to Discard the recover file  and
       preserve	 the  existing file, or to Overwrite the existing file to pre‐
       serve the recover file as the only copy of the file.

       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.

       -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
	      Set the current index browse time to browse  time	 (in  nsr_get‐
	      date(3)  format).	  Using this option is equivalent to using the
	      change browse time dialog within nwrecover.

       -p pass phrase
	      Specifies an additional pass phrase to use  when	attempting  to
	      recover  files backed up using the aes directive. By default the
	      current datazone encryption key is tried as well as the key gen‐
	      erated  from  the	 default pass phrase. Using this option causes
	      recover to generate an encryption key from the pass  phrase  and
	      try it if the default and datazone pass phrase keys do not work.
	      This option can be specifie multiple times.

	      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.
