dsmc res /opt/ar/* /opt/ar/ -pick -inactive -subdir=yes
returned no data. What I had to do was
dsmc res /opt/* /opt/ar/ -pick -inactive -subdir=yes -pitd=
and then the data would show and I could select it manually for restore. If there is one thing I have learned with TSM is always double, triple, and quadruple check for "missing" data using various methods, chances are it is probably there. Remember the user is clueless....don't get me started on symbolic links and how users don't always know the actual location of their data.
