[EM] Missing timestamp in File Level Restore for Linux

Post by FTBZ » Nov 24, 2016 4:31 pm

Hello,

Can you tell me if we have a magical way to show to timestamp and permission on files/directories when using the Enterprise Manager and File Level Restore for Linux?
These columns exist in the Windows client and on the File Level Restore for Windows (on Enterprise Manager).

I'm using version 9.0U2.

Thanks

Hello, unfortunately there's no way to this. Linux guest file system indexing uses mlocate database which does not contain these details. Thanks!

Hi Gostev,

Not sure about your response, because we can use Enterprise Manager and FLR without mlocate (indexing) and the columns aren't present on Enterprise Manager. So why this information exist on the Veeam Windows client?

I think, if you're not using the indexing and use the mount option, these informations need to be showed and when you're in the standard indexing it can be hidden. No?

When you use FLR, we mount the image backup, so what you see are the information that are read in real time from the disk of the virtual machine.
What Anton means is that offline indexing, that you can then use to do searched in EM, is based on the indexes created by mlocate, but the indexes don't contain that values.
