Restoring Data From a UFS Snapshot Backup

The backup created from the virtual device is essentially just a backup of what the original file system looked like when the snapshot was taken. When you restore a file system from the backup, restore as if you had taken the backup directly from the original file system. Such a restore uses the ufsrestore command. For information on using the ufsrestore command to restore a file or file system, see Chapter 27, Restoring UFS Files and File Systems (Tasks).
