In certain circumstances you may wish to bypass Windows permissions when restoring data.
On a Windows system, it is possible to restore files without the associated access control lists (ACLs) using either the
TSM GUI or the command line.
From the TSM GUI, open the
Restore window and select
Untick the box labelled 'Restore NTFS security information', click
OK, and restore your files.
This setting will stay in effect only until the restore window is closed, and so will need to be unticked for
each restore session of this type.
From the command line, use the 'skipntp' option, as in the following example:
dsmc restore source-file destination-file -skipntp=yes
Refer to our section on restoring files using the
command line interface for more information.
After the restore is complete, you should review the Windows permissions and ownership of these
files to be sure they have properly inherited those that you are expecting.
