When carrying out a restore - using a Data Management Application via NDMP to the appliance - it is possible to specify that the restore dataset name includes spaces in it.
In the following example, Netbackup was used to restore a backup of a share to a new dataset with the name 'testrestore'. Unfortunately, using cut-and-paste introduced a space at the end of the name - "testrestore ". This space was accepted by the DMA (Netbackup), passed along and accepted by NDMP and then passed on to zfs to create the dataset. However share names with trailing spaces break the CLI - although the BUI seems able to cope with them.
See below for error message details.
Restores carried out direct to the appliance using NDMP. The restore specifies a dataset name that includes spaces.
