SureBackup

Hi. Do we think it's really necessary to restore ALL VMs from backup jobs for SureBackup? That takes a long time. Would it not be nice/sufficient to be able to set a SureBackup job to "restore x VMs from all backup jobs" - this way, it would always run a test backup of at least a few from each chain, which is possibly one of the objectives?

Are after something like random SureBackup jobs?

That would be nice, but I have other questions/suggestions...

1. is there a way to have the task auto-select a few select VMs from each backup job?
2. would we deem it sufficient to do so, or is SureBackup only deemed as valuable by restoring ALL VMs?

1. You can modify the script proposed in the referenced thread, so that, instead of random VMs it selects pre-defined ones.
2. By verifying only selected VMs you will only make sure that the selected VMs are recoverable.
