Client Restore to other dir


#1

Hello together,
i would like to play back the root directory on the client. But not to the original place, but to another directory.

urbackupclientctl restore-start -d /root -m /root -t /xyz -b last

But he always overwrites the client in the root directory…

Root is / in this case isn’t it?

So you’d need:

urbackupclientctl restore-start -d /root -m / -t /xyz -b last

Thank you for this hint. Thats how it works. I have one more question. If I download the client via the web interface and install it on a fresh system, it works just fine. However, when I try to perform a restore then I get the following error message:

“Error starting restore No file backup access tokens found.”

I could only handle it by restoring the urbackup directory. Is there no better way to do this?
