Summary: xfsrestore from 1.3.3-pre2 test release cannot restore
to non-xfs filesystems
Product: Linux XFS
When I try to run xfsrestore with a non-xfs filesystem as the destination (e.g.
an ext3 filesystem), I get the following error:
# xfsrestore -A -J -i -f /fs/u3/u1.xfsdump .
xfsrestore: using file dump (drive_simple) strategy
xfsrestore: version 2.2.21 (dump format 3.0) - Running single-threaded
xfsrestore: unable to construct a file system handle for /fs/u1: Inappropriate
ioctl for device
xfsrestore: Restore Status: ERROR
The source of this error seems to be the call to path_to_fshandle at
restore/content.c:content_init:1248; in prior versions of xfsrestore (e.g. the
1.3.1 release) this call only occured if the variable restoredmpr was true, i.e.
if the user specified -D on the command line.
