xfs_mdrestore - restores an XFS metadump image to a filesystem image
xfs_mdrestore [ -gi ] source target
xfs_mdrestore -i source
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 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
xfs_mdrestore should not be used to restore metadata onto
an existing filesystem unless you are completely certain the target
can be destroyed.
xfs_mdrestore returns an exit code of 0 if all the metadata is
successfully restored or 1 if an error occurs.
