Description:
The description of --node-id is misleading:
"-n is used to specify the node ID of the data node on which the backups were taken."
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/mysql-cluster-programs-ndb-restore.html#option_ndb_...

It appears that ndb_restore utility can only be used to restore backup file on the data node on which the backups were taken, which is not true, in fact ndb_restore is an ndb api program that insert/update and delete data. Soit can be used to restore data onto a data node other than on which the backup were taken.

How to repeat:
documentation bug

Suggested fix:
Therefore documentation may be updated as:

"-n is used to specify which node's backup file should be restored"
