Mount

The mount command mounts a snapshot of one or more drives. You can specify whether the mount should be read, write, or read-only with previous writes. The default selection is read-only.

Usage

The usage for the command is as follows:

/mount -core [host name] -user [user name] -password [password] -protectedserver [name | IP address] -mounttype [read | write | readOnlyWithPreviousWrites] -drives [drive names] -volumes [volume names] -path [location] -rpn [number | numbers] | -time [time string]

Command Options

The following table describes the options available for the mount command:

-core
Optional. Remote Core host machine IP address (with an optional port number). By default, the connection is made to the Core installed on the local machine.
-user
Optional. User name for the remote Core host machine. If you specify a user name, you must also provide a password. If none is provided, then the credentials for the logged-on user are used.
-password
Optional. Password to the remote Core host machine. If you specify a password, you also have to provide a user name. If none is provided, then the credentials for the logged-on user are used.
-protectedserver
Protected machine with a recovery point or points to be mounted.
-mounttype
Optional. Specifies a mount mode. Available values are 'read' (read-only), 'readOnlyWithPreviousWrites' (read-only with previous writes), 'write' (writable). The default mode is read-only.
-volumes	
Optional. List of volume names to mount. If not specified, all volumes are mounted. Values must be enclosed in double quotes and separated by spaces; for example: "c:" "d:". Do not use trailing slashes in volume names.
-path
Path to a folder on the core server to which the recovery point should be mounted. If one does not exist, a folder is automatically created.
-rpn
Optional. The sequential number of a recovery point to mount (use /list rps command to get the numbers). Specify several space-separated numbers to mount multiple recovery points with a single command. In this case data from each recovery point will be stored in a separate child folder. Note: if neither option -time nor -rpn is specified then the most recent recovery point that successfully passed integrity check will be mounted.
-time
Optional. Determines recovery point or points to be selected for mount. Available values include: 'latest', 'passed', exact time in the format "mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm tt" (for instance, "2/24/2012 09:00 AM"). Keep in mind to specify date time values of the time zone set on your PC. If neither the -time option nor the -rpn option is specified, then the most recent recovery point that successfully passed an integrity check is mounted.
-localdrive
Optional. Perform mount to user disk on local PC.

Examples:

Mount the most recent recovery points containing volumes “c:\” and “d:\” in the read-only mode:

>cmdutil /mount -core 10.10.10.10 -user administrator -password 23WE@#$sdd -protectedserver 10.10.5.22 -path c:\mountedrecoverypoint -mounttype read -volumes "c:" "d:"

Mount recovery points with numbers 2 and 7:

>cmdutil /mount -core 10.10.10.10 -user administrator -password 23WE@#$sdd -protectedserver 10.10.5.22 -path c:\mountedrecoverypoint -rpn 2 7
