18--------------
19
20debug
21    Call mondorestore with -K99
22
23denymods="mod1 mod2"
24    Add those modules to the list of modules to NOT load
25
26donteject
27    mondorestore will not eject the CD; this is useful if, for instance, your PC's case has a concealed CD-ROM drive
28
29forcemods="mod1 mod2"
30    Add those modules to the list of modules to load systematically
31
32net
33    Activate network support
34
35nodmraid
36    Do not try to start dmraid support
37
38nohw
39    Do not call the mindi-rsthw script which try to restore also your BIOSes configuration (Proliant only)
40
41nolvm
42    Do not try to start LVM support
43
44nomd
45    Do not try to start mdadm support
46
47nompath
48    Do not try to start multipath support
49
50nopart
51    Do not try to partition drives at restore time
52
53noresize
54    Do not resize partitions using a multiplication factor of (New disk size)/(Old disk size) to use your unallocated hard disk space
55
56obdr
57    Call mondorestore with -o and the tape device
58
59pre=/path/to/script
60    Execute a pre-configuration script before calling mondorestore. Could be an NFS shared script e.g., or a script located in the initrd.
61
62post=/path/to/script
63    Execute a final script before rebooting the machine at the end of the restoration. Could be an NFS shared script e.g., or a script located on the restored disk or in the initrd.
64
65textonly
66    do not call any Newt library routines; this is unattractive but valuable if you find your Newt library has bugs in it or on ia64
67
68usb=/dev/xxx
69    Use that USB device name as the place to look for backup content. The way drivers are loaded may lead that to the fact you have a different device name at restore time, compared to the one you used at backup time, making mondorestore unable to use the right device natively. This helper corrects that. Pass to it the device name, not the partition name. Example: usb=/dev/sdb
