       nwretrieve - NetWorker graphical retrieve interface

       nwretrieve [ -p pass-phrase ] [ -s server ] [ <X-args> ]

       nwretrieve  is  an X Window System application.	It is used to retrieve
       files that have been archived with NetWorker.  If you are running in  a
       non-X11 environment, nsrretrieve(8) may be used to retrieve files.

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

       If you are retrieving files that	 were  archived	 with  Access  Control
       Lists  (ACLs),  you  need  to be in group operator or the file owner to
       retrieve the file.  See the NetWorker Administrator's  Guide  for  more
       information  about file permissions issues associate with archiving and

       There are three basic steps to retrieve a lost file:  (1)  Browse  Net‐
       Worker's	 list  of Archives in the Retrieve window.  (2) Select the Ar‐
       chive you wish to retrieve.  (3) Start the retrieve.

       Opening the Retrieve window connects with the NetWorker server indexes.
       Selecting  the Query button displays a list of archive available on the
       server. The entries in the list represent previously archived files.

       To start the retrieve: Select the Start retrieve command from the  File
       menu.  The Retrieve Status dialog box appears, and you may enter a path
       to relocate to and select if you want to overwrite existing files.

       After you press OK in the Retrieve Status dialog box, the Retrieve will
       begin  retrieving the selected archives and status will be displayed in
       the Status field.  NetWorker  will  then	 automatically	determine  the
       media needed to complete the retrieve, prompt the operator to mount the
       media, and execute the retrieve.

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

       -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 specified multiple times.

       -s server
	      Set the current NetWorker server to server.

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