[Feature request] Restore ACL only

Post by Fred_vBrain »

Hi all,

one of my customers approached me and was asking about how to restore individual ACLs of a file or folder. He said Commvault can do this. After a short research I found this: http://documentation.commvault.com/comm ... e_area.htm.

Personally this would be a great features because what happens if an admin accidentally changed the permission of some folders or files. Especially if he get's locked out be this action.
So in that case you just want to restore the ACL and not the complete folder/files/data.

Cheers,
Fred

This doesn't fix the "lock out" issue you mentioned however, you can use the existing file level recovery option and backup browser to view the properties of files / folder then reapply or script to the files / folders in question.

Hi Clint.

the lock out was just a "bad" example! :) Ok yes I can do that but it's not really a pretty solution. But yes without the lack of this function a customer needs to go this way.

Thanks.

+1 for a couple of my customers as well. But my customer would want this for NAS\backups and Vmware FLR restores.
