I had a nice use case for restore yesterday which was for me difficult to reply with our Veeam Setup.
Some background info:
- Veeam B&R 9.5
- About 600 Linux VM (RedHat)
- Basic Image backup (no file catalog)
Our Linux administrator did a wrong manipulation.
Some specific file (in our example /etc/motd) was modified on about 300 Linux to a default value.
The customized files was therefore lost on all those systems.
The question from our Linux team was if we were able to restore the file on all the impacted system (300 of them) as fast as possible.
The only solution I had in mind was to start a Linux FLR of each machine, one by one.
That means that each restore will take about 5-10 minutes to complete. For the 300 VMs, that means a few (20-50) hours.
Does someone of you have some ideas how to faster this type of use case?
Thanks and Regards,
