NAME

       era_restore - restore era metadata file to device or file.

SYNOPSIS

       era_restore [options] -i {xml file} -o {device|file}

DESCRIPTION

       era_restore  restores  era  metadata created by the respective device-mapper target dumped
       into an XML formatted (see era_dump(8)) file, which optionally can be preprocessed  before
       the  restore to another device or file. If restored to a metadata device, the metadata can
       be processed by the device-mapper target.

       This tool cannot be run on live metadata.

OPTIONS

       -h, --help
              Print help and exit.

       -V, --version
              Print version information and exit.

       -q, --quiet
              Don't print any output.  Check the exit code to test for success.

       -i, --input {xml file}
              Specify input file containing xml metadata.

       -o, --output {device|file}
              Output device or file for restored binary metadata.

           If a file is used, then it must be preallocated, and large enough to hold
           the metadata.

EXAMPLE

       Restores  the  XML  formatted  era  metadata  on   file   metadata   to   logical   volume
       /dev/vg/metadata for further processing by the respective device-mapper target:

           $ era_restore -i metadata -o /dev/vg/metadata

DIAGNOSTICS

       era_restore returns an exit code of 0 for success or 1 for error.
