SYNOPSIS

xfs_mdrestore [ -g ] source target

DESCRIPTION

xfs_mdrestore is a debugging tool that restores a metadata image generated by xfs_metadump(8) to a filesystem. The source argument specifies the location of the metadump image and the target argument specifies the destination for the filsystem 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.

DIAGNOSTICS

xfs_mdrestore returns an exit code of 0 if all the metadata is succesfully restored or 1 if an error occurs.
