Netapp powershell | Restore file using snapshot

Hello Team,

 

I have Netapp powershell tool kit and trying to automate file restore operation using snapshot. I have found below 

 

Restore-NcCifsShadowCopyDirectory 

Restore-NcSnapshotFile

 

However, I am not bale to successfully restore the file.  For example :

 

PS C:> Restore-NcSnapshotFile

cmdlet Restore-NcSnapshotFile at command pipeline position 1
Supply values for the following parameters:
(Type !? for Help.)
Path: /volume/text.txt
SnapName: weekly.2020-06-21_0015

Restore file from snapshot
Are you sure you want to restore file /volume/test.txt from snapshot weekly.2020-06-21_0015?

Re: Netapp powershell | Restore file using snapshot

If you've already connected to the vserver using connect-nccontroller, try using the restore-ncsnapshotfile command like this:

 

restore-ncsnapshotfile /vol/{volume_name}/test.txt weekly.2020-06-21_0015

 

let me know if it works out.
