NAME

       cache_restore - restore cache metadata file to device or file

SYNOPSIS

       cache_restore [options] -i {device|file} -o {device|file}

DESCRIPTION

       cache_restore restores cache metadata created by the respective device-
       mapper target dumped into an XML formatted (see cache_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.

       -i, --input {device|file}
              Input file or device with metadata.

       -o, --output {device|file}
              Output file or device.

       {--debug-override-metadata-version} <integer>
              ONLY FOR DEBUGGING PURPOSES:
              override the version stored in the metadata.

       -h, --help
              Print help and exit.

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

EXAMPLE

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

       cache_restore -i metadata -o /dev/vg/metadata

DIAGNOSTICS

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