NAME

       xfs_mdrestore - restores an XFS metadump image to a filesystem image

SYNOPSIS

       xfs_mdrestore [ -g ] source target

DESCRIPTION

       xfs_mdrestore   is   a  debugging  tool  that  restores  a  metadata  image  generated  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 filsystem 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 destroyed.

OPTIONS

       -g     Shows restore progress on stdout.

DIAGNOSTICS

       xfs_mdrestore  returns an exit code of 0 if all the metadata is successfully restored or 1
       if an error occurs.
