    Question proper syntax to run bprestore to different path


    I am trying to run a bprestore on netback client 7.5 to a different folder, but can't seem to find the proper way to do a restore to a different folder.

    I can do it of course using the GUI client.

    ex. want to restore /home/dir1 , but want to actually save it to /home/dir2

    /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bprestore -L /tmp/restore.log /home/dir1 /home/dir2

    That doesn't seem to work, so i may be missing a parameter, that I cannot find.

    Thanks in advance

    This doesn't appear to be in any way a Linux/RedHat question...but it is covered in the NBU Commands Manual:

    http://www.symantec.com/business/sup...ent&id=DOC5182

    Where it states on page 332:

    -R rename_file
    Specifies the name of a file with name changes for alternate-path restores.
    For example: bprestore -R /C/renamefile /C/origfile
    Where /C/rename_file is the file with the name change and /C/origfile is
    the file to be renamed. The pathname that you enter must be an absolute
    path.
