It's a long shot I know but if you don't ask, you don't get!
I've just set up a couple of small remote sites (two hosts, a few VMs) where we've configured a local proxy/repository VM, replicate locally & manage from/send backup copies back to HQ.
It all works well but the weak point is the fact that if we lose the (point-to-point VPN) link back to HQ then EVERYTHING stops. It would be really nice if there was some method of caching "scheduled job commands" locally, say on a Proxy, so that even if the link back to HQ fails, which I know will obviously stop any off-site copies, at least it will do local backups/replicas as per default schedule until told otherwise.
I know it's a slightly odd request but I'm sure plenty of folks out there would appreciate such a facility and, as I said, if you don't ask...
