NAME amraw - Amanda Application open and read data
DESCRIPTION Amraw is an Amanda Application API script. It should not be run by users directly. It uses dd to backup and restore data. Amraw can backup only one directory entry, it can be a single file, a raw device, anything that amanda can open and read. The diskdevice in the disklist (DLE) must be the filename amraw open and read. Restore is done in place, an open is done and the data is written to it. A file owned by root and permission 0600 is create if the directory entry doesn't exist before the restore. Only full backup is allowed
PROPERTIES This section lists the properties that control amgtar's functionality. See amanda- applications(7) for information on application properties and how they are configured. DIRECTORY Used only for restore command, can be a device name or file, the data will be restored to it.
EXAMPLE define application-tool app_amraw { plugin "amraw" } A dumptype using this application might look like: define dumptype amraw { global program "APPLICATION" application "app_amraw" } Note that the program parameter must be set to "APPLICATION" to use the application parameter.
