     NAME
          era_restore - restore era metadata file to device or file.

     SYNOPSIS
          era_restore [options] -i {xml file} -o {device|file}

     DESCRIPTION
          era_restore restores era metadata created by the respective
          device-mapper target dumped into an XML formatted (see
          era_dump(8)) file, which optionally can be preprocessed
          before the restore to another device or file. If restored to
          a metadata device, the metadata can be processed by the
          device-mapper target.

          This tool cannot be run on live metadata.

     OPTIONS
          -h, --help
               Print help and exit.

          -V, --version
               Print version information and exit.

          -q, --quiet
               Don't print any output.  Check the exit code to test
               for success.

          -i, --input {xml file}
               Specify input file containing xml metadata.

          -o, --output {device|file}
               Output device or file for restored binary metadata.

              If a file is used, then it must be preallocated, and large enough to hold
              the metadata.

     EXAMPLE
          Restores the XML formatted era metadata on file metadata to
          logical volume /dev/vg/metadata for further processing by
          the respective device-mapper target:

              $ era_restore -i metadata -o /dev/vg/metadata

     DIAGNOSTICS
          era_restore returns an exit code of 0 for success or 1 for
          error.
