RST backup and restore

Existing backup and restore commands work with RSTs. The target database of a restore must have a compatible model of levels, categories, and cohorts. All of the security descriptors referenced by tables in a database backup must be present on a machine that is a restore target or the restore fails. Backup captures the security descriptor information with each backup. Restore compares the security descriptors in the backup against those descriptors in the restore target system.

The nzrestore command checks for compatibility before beginning to insert data. The comparison shows any security discrepancies early in the restore operation, rather than during the data load phase. The compatibility check can be disabled if you want.
