Unable to open nwrecover, Error: nwrecover: NSR: please start a server on client_name


While trying to open the graphical recovery interface by running nwrecover from the client, this error was displayed.


In this case, multiple networker servers existed and nwrecover could not determine which network server to use for the client.

The server can be specified to the nwrecover command with the -s option.

nwrecover -c client_name -s server_name
-s server_name sets the NetWorker server, and -c client_name sets the NetWorker client index.
