xfs_mdrestore(8)	    System Manager's Manual	      xfs_mdrestore(8)

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	gener-
       ated 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 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  de-
       stroyed.

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 success-
       fully restored or 1 if an error occurs.

SEE ALSO
       xfs_metadump(8),	xfs_repair(8), xfs(5)
