Restore data from amanda backup server
it shows the client names and the directories we are taking backup on that client
Then use setdisk command to set the directory which we want to recover data from
# setdisk /data/backup
then add the files you want to recover for example if you want to recover file1
# add file1
In my case i have give only one file to take backup so i will use '*' to recover all files in that
# add *
Then finally use extract command to recover all files.
The output of all these commands can be seen here :
After giving extract command it will gives the list of data extracting location , tapes needed and the location of backup directory and it will ask for confirmation
Continue [ ?/Y/n/s/d]?
i am showing the rest of the flow in screen shots have a look at them
we can see from the above screenshot that amanda-backup-client debian package has been recovered .
we can see that file below in the temp directory.
