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