SYNOPSIS

       /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/xbp  [-r]  [-ra]  [-rr]  [-nl][-browselimit  files]  [X
              options]


DESCRIPTION

       The xbp command starts a graphical user interface that lets users archive,  back
       up, and restore files, directories, or raw partitions from their client worksta-
       tions. You can use xbp only from an X terminal or X server  that  is  compatible
       with MIT release X11.R4 (or later) of the X Window system.

       The  xbp  interface  follows  OSF/Motif  conventions. If you are unfamiliar with
       these conventions, see the OSF/Motif User's Guide, authored by the Open Software
       Foundation and published by Prentice-Hall, Inc., ISBN 0-130640509-6.

       The  NetBackup  User's  Guide  for UNIX and the xbp online help provide detailed
       operating instructions.


OPTIONS

       xbp has separate modes for backups,  archives,  and  restores.  The  backup  and
       archive  modes  display  the  file  system. By default, xbp starts in filesystem
       mode. The following options allow you to directly control the startup mode:

       -r        Start with display of backups for possible restore.

       -ra       Start with display of archives for possible restore.

       -rr       Start with display of raw-partition backups for possible restore.

       -nl       Specifies that xbp does not  resolve  links  during  the  search.  The
                 default is to resolve links.

       -browselimit files
                 Specifies the limit for implicit searching.  When switching to restore
                 mode, if the number of files and directories that were backed up  dur-
                 ing  the specified date range is large (10000 by default), xbp pops up
                 a warning dialog saying that  searching  is  delayed  until  the  user
                 explicitly selects Update Display from the Edit menu.

                 By  using  the  -browselimit  parameter  when invoking xbp, a user can
                 increase this limit beyond 10000 files.

       Also, xbp supports the standard command-line options  for  X  programs.  One  of
       these  is the -d option, which forces the name of the X terminal or server. Most
       users already have their DISPLAY environment variable defined and can  routinely
       ignore the -d option.

       Other useful X options are:

       -bg color Specifies  the  color  to  use  for  the background of the window. The
                 default is white.

       -fg color Specifies the color to use for displaying text. The default is  black.
