You just specify the raw

You just specify the raw device in the file selection in the policy.

For example.

/devices/pci@1e,600000/pci@0/pci@9/pci@0/scsi@1/sd@0,0:d

Have you checked the Admin Guide for this , it is all explained in there.

Just restore in BAR like

Just restore in BAR like normal file backup. One difference is choosing RAW Partition Backup as Restore type. If you want to restore onto alternate disk, select "restore individual directories and files to different locations" and enter device file of target disk.

Raw Restore is also

Raw Restore is also documented in Admin Guide I. under the topic 'UNIX raw partitions':

 

To restore the raw partition, make sure that a device file exists. Also, the partition where the table is restored must be large enough or the results of the restore are unpredictable.
