Automated Restore

Post by ober72 » Feb 01, 2019 4:50 pm

Hi Folks,

Has anybody setup an automated daily restore (script). I want to have a folder containing certain files to be restored every day to another test Linux server that I have. So the idea would be nightly automated file level backup direct to cloud connect of the folder on one server. Then the next morning automated restore from cloud connect to there other server.

cheers

I’m sure this can be scripted via bash by leveraging veeamconfig. Quickly thinking about it the workflow would be:
- list/get latest restore point
- mount it to a folder
- perform the copy to the original folder / other server (use rsync/scp)
- unmount the backup
- optional: send a mail?

Put this in a crontab and you should be good to go.
