Cannot see restore job under sessions

Post by withanh » Jan 04, 2010 5:58 pm

I just ran a restore job on a full VM (incl. registration) from a rollback point as a test. I gave the vm a new name (restore-oldvmname) and it restored just fine. When I go to look in sessions, I can see my backup jobs, clone jobs, and copy jobs, but cannot see the restore job.

Should I be able to see the restore job listed? Is there somewhere else I can look at to see the performance of the restore?

Thanks!

Restores are currently not implemented as jobs, so they cannot be seen in the sessions' history. But once the restore is completed, the restore status dialog remains open, so that you can lookup restore performance before dismissing it.

Thanks!

Shoot, I didn't realize that and had already closed the status dialog. Any chance of that getting added to the feature request list? Would be nice to be able to see file level restore info as well (if it's not already there).

Thanks!

Yep, this feature is in the pending features list already, it was requested a few times by now...
