These options are associated with single-file backups. You use
them in combination with the mysqlbackup
extract that pack or unpack
single-image backups. For usage information, see
Section 3.3.5, “Making a Single-File Backup”.
Specify the path name of the file used for a single-file backup. By default, the single-file backup is streamed to standard output, so that you can pipe it directly to other commands such as tape backup or ssh-related network commands.
You can optionally prefix the image name with
file: to signify file I/O (the
default). For tape backups, prefix the image name

Identifies a file or directory to extract from a
single-file backup. This option is used with the
extract command. If the
argument is a directory, all its files and subdirectory
contents are extracted. No pattern matching expression is
allowed for the argument. Optionally, you can also specify
--dst-entry option to
extract the file or directory in a location different from
its original path name.
only one file,
src-entry=meta extracts the entire

Default: All entries are extracted.
Used with single-file backups to extract a single file or
directory to a user-specified path. Use of this option
requires specifying the
--src-entry option. This
option specifies the destination path for the selected
entry in backup image corresponding to entry specified by
option. The entry could point to a single file or single
directory. For example, to retrieve the comments file from
a backup image and store it as
/tmp/my-comments.txt, use a command
like the following:
mysqlbackup --src-entry=meta/comments.txt \ --dst-entry=/tmp/my-comments.txt \ --backup-image=/var/myimage.bki extract
Similarly, to extract all the contents of the
meta directory in a single-file
/data/my-meta, use a
command like the following:
mysqlbackup --src-entry=meta \ --dst-entry=/data/my-meta \ --backup-image=/var/myimage.bki extract
The specified path is a simple path name without any wildcard expansion or or regular expressions.
Default: By default, original pathnames are used to create files in the local file system.
For tape backups, this option can be used as a hint to the Media Management Software (MMS) for the selection of media and policies. This name has nothing to do with MySQL database names. It is a term used by the MMS. See Section 184.108.40.206, “Backing Up to Tape with Oracle Secure Backup” for usage details.
Path name of the SBT library used by software that manages
tape backups. If this is not specified, operating
system-specific search methods are used to locate
libobk.so (UNIX) or
orasbt.dll (Windows). See
Section 220.127.116.11, “Backing Up to Tape with Oracle Secure Backup” for usage details.
