To create a restore job, use the following options.

-create

Creates and optionally schedules a restore job.

Specify the ID of the backup saveset that you want to restore. In addition to the saveset number, you can preface the saveset number with the target client name and the plug-in used, each separated with a colon.

Example:

59:NVSERVER:filesystem

This format helps in reducing the time taken to locate the saveset.

-title

Specifies the name of the job.

-path

Specifies the directory or file that you want to restore. Provide the full path to the items.

-relocate

Relocates the selected items to the specified path or directory. Ensure that the specified path is created before you run the restore job.

-rename

Renames the selected items. You can use this option if you do not want to overwrite existing files or directories.

-run

Runs the job. Without this option, the restore job is created and saved, but it is not scheduled to run.

-wait

Waits until the task has completed.

With this option, the utility return a result of “job succeeded” or “job failed” before releasing the prompt for additional commands.

To create a restore job from a job definition file, use the following options.

-create

Creates and optionally schedules a restore job.

Specify the ID of the backup saveset that you want to restore. In addition to the saveset number, you can preface the saveset number with the target client name and the plug‑in used, each separated with a colon.

Example: 59:NVSERVER:filesystem

This format helps in reducing the time taken to locate the saveset.

-definition

Specifies the name of the job definition file. Provide the full file path.

The definition file includes a list of files or directories that you want to include or exclude. It must use the following format:

Relocate=<Relocation path> (Ensure that the path is created before you run the job.)
Rename=<New name for the item> (You can use this option if you do not want to overwrite existing files or directories.)

-run

Runs the job. Without this option, the restore job is created and saved, but not scheduled to run.

-wait

Waits until the task has completed.

With this option, the utility return a result of “job succeeded” or “job failed” before releasing the prompt for additional commands.

The following rules apply to Restore Definition File:

For the Rename and Relocate options, a separate [Include] stanza must be created for each item. Correct
Both the Rename and Relocate options can be specified within the same instance of the [Include] stanza to perform both operations for a single file or directory.
path=C:\data\new (data that you want to restore and its original path)
relocate=C:\saved\data (the relocation path)
rename=C:\saved\data\old (the relocation path along with the new directory name)
The relocation directory must exist on the target system before you run the restore job. You can create and save the job without using the “-run” parameter and establish a new directory for relocation in the command, but when you runt the job, the target relocation directory must exist.
