Hi Jim


Retrieves only files in the C$ root directory with a period in the name.

If you want everything under c$ I'd use

ret \\thatnode\c$\*  -fromnode=thatnode -subdir=y

you will also have to specify a destination  as without it will try to put the 
data back into \\thatnode

I find it interesting that you use -fromnode.  I had sort of forgotten it 
exists.  I normally use -virtualn and if necessary change the node password.

Subject: [ADSM-L] dsmc retrieve syntax for a remote node?

I'm trying to retrieve some old archived data with dsmc from thatnode to 
thisnode, and I seem to have forgotten the strange magic involved in correctly 
specifying the paths.  So on thisnode,

dsmc> q filespace -fromnode=thatnode

shows me things like


but something like

dsmc> ret \\thatnode\c$\*.* -fromnode=thatnode

and various permutations just returns a message about nothing being archived by 
that path name.  What am I missing?
