NAME
xfs_mdrestore - restores an XFS metadump image to a filesystem image SYNOPSIS
xfs_mdrestore [ -g ] source target xfs_mdrestore -V DESCRIPTION
xfs_mdrestore is a debugging tool that restores a metadata image generated by xfs_metadump(8) to a filesystem. The source argument speci- fies the location of the metadump image and the target argument specifies the destination for the filesystem image. If the source is -, then the metadata image is read from stdin. This allows the output of be another program such as a compression application to be redirected to xfs_mdrestore. The target can be either a file or a device. xfs_mdrestore should not be used to restore metadata onto an existing filesystem unless you are completely certain the target can be destroyed. OPTIONS
-g Shows restore progress on stdout. -V Prints the version number and exits. DIAGNOSTICS
xfs_mdrestore returns an exit code of 0 if all the metadata is successfully restored or 1 if an error occurs. SEE ALSO
xfs_metadump(8), xfs_repair(8), xfs_check(8), xfs(5) BUGS
