Linux FLR restore 1 file on multiple VM use case

Hi There,

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)

The story:
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:
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,
