I'm using zmanda zrm for the first time, following the little tutorial at
http://www.zmanda.com/quick-mysql-backup.html

The restore command
-bash-3.1# mysql-zrm -restore --backup-set dailyrun --source-directory \
/var/lib/mysql-zrm/dailyrun/20061025161624/

appears inaccurate for 2.1 at least. It responded with

ERROR: Please specify --action
USAGE:
--action <backup|restore|schedule-backup|report|list|getconf|purge|parse-binlogs|check|verify-backup|extract-backup|abort-backup>
Help on individual action items can be obtained by specifying --help with the required action.
For example: 'mysql-zrm --action backup --help'

When I changed it as indicated ('--action restore' vs '-restore') things worked fine.
Recommend fixing the documentation and perhaps make version diff notations.

Another improvement on that tutorial would be to add a little troubleshooting
section at the bottom, such as if you get ERROR 3 (HY000) and problems creating in /tmp, perhaps you should check your disk space to do the restore in.

Is there a place to find all the errors listed and troubleshooting hints for them?
