Specifying no ACLs to be restored

You can exclude ACLs from a restore. This provides a slight performance enhancement.

About this task

You can exclude ACLs in two situations:

  • You plan to restore to an environment that does not support ACLs.
  • The backup has no files or directories that contain ACLs.


  1. To exclude ACLs from a restore, include the A option in the restore command line.

    Note: This option does not take a parameter.


The following command restores a backup, but does not restore ACLs:

restore rfA rst0a

The following list describes the elements of the command line:
Performs a full restore.
Specifies that a tape device is supplied in the command line.
Specifies not to restore ACLs.
