DS8000 Flashcopy Reverse Restore

    I'm searching for a documented procedure to restore data back to the source volume when you do a flashcopy -nocp (fast reverse restore) as I haven't found any document with commands step by step.
    I've found an example on this redbook (12.2.3 Using a target volume to restore its contents back to the source) but is about -cp flashcopy (reverse restore), and also there I've a question, when you do reverseflash, why you specify "-persist -record -tgtinhibit" as the "target" is the volume mapped to the host?
    best regards
