I'm in a bad pinch here. We just found out that our Legato backup server
has never backedup a large section of our tree. That specific section has
a container with a dot in the name. Even with the preceeding \ the backup
agent does not escape the character and thinks that it is supposed to drop
to the next container.

I've been playing around with SBCON and SBCON works just fine to backup
those containers. I would just like to dump the NDS out to a file on the
filesystem, then let Legato move it to tape. The problem is that sbcon
seems to insist on a tape device.

I know there is functionality in iManager to do NDS dumps, but you can't do
object level restores there.
