We have had our BackupPC server fail completely. I have a backup of
(most of) the data pool but not the system. Thus, I will need to rebuild
the BackupPC installation.
I haven't been able to find any information on how best to recover from
this. How to "plug" the old pool into a new BackupPC installation so
restores can be done via the interface. Can anyone shed any light on this?
I am using the "Copying the pool" instructions in the BackupPC FAQ to
restore as much of the pool into the new server but have lost the config

The steps are generally:
1. Copy/move the old pool to the same location as the default installation.
IE, for Ubuntu, /var/lib/backuppc
2. Add all the hosts listed in /var/lib/backuppc/pc to /etc/backuppc/hosts
You should be able to now see all the hosts, but you'll have to rebuild the
default and per-host configurations.
