Our new rx2800 server is running HP-UX 11iV3. We have a cron script to perform an fbackup to a file on disk nightly. Now I'm trying to do a test restore, but I can't seem to find the correct way to specify the backup file as the source in frecover. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

The OS is HP-UX 11iV3. And there may be a terminology issue here. I say 'backup' and you say 'archive'. What I have is a cron that runs fbackup every night and creates a backup file of a production file system on a secondary disk. The backup file is called 'backup'. Since fbackup was used to create the file, I've made the assumption I would use frestore to restore any files and/or directories that may be needed. This is a new/upgraded system and I'm simply trying to update documentation so I can make use of the backup file if necessary. I already know how to restore from tape.
