Command line restore with bprestore

Created: 12 Sep 2013 | 2 comments

Master server : solaris with nbu

Client : solaris with nbu

I am trying to restore numerous files in the root of each directory but to exclude subfolders of these folders to a different location on the same client and using the command below

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bprestore -C <client_name> -t <policy_type> /dir !/dir/dir1/dir2

The restore will then be displayed on the GUI as queued and will remain in that state while the resources (drives and tapes) are available. If i use the same command without exclusion, the restore will complete successfully.

Any help will be appreciated

(the number is count of characters in the path)
