What is the question? Do you want to know why it was only partially successful?

If so, create tar log on the destination client, re-run the restore and post up the tar log.

Please show us your command that includes -L option.

Remember to create log folders if you want to troubleshoot status 1.

Most important is tar log folder on the client.

Best to have all of these log folders to troubleshoot restores:

On master: bprd (NBU needs to be restarted to enable this log)

On media server: bpbrm and bptm

On client: bpcd and tar

You have not showed us anything to work with or to troubleshoot.

You probably made a typo error previously which caused it to fail, right?

Glad you got it to work!

bpbackup and bprestore are not always the easiest commands - normally it's just a matter of trial and error to figure it out. Even us 'old folks' get it wrong because we don't use cmd every day.

You may have added -L initially to the end of the command which won't work, as the file list must always be the last option on cmd. We won't know because you did not share the command that did not work. The commands in your screenshots are perfectly fine and working.
