cloudberry backup "restore-only" free edition alongside a regular managed installation
Hi Matt & Anton,
So there is no straightforward / direct support for an mbs dashboard administrator for example to simply retrieve something from a backup, without first:
- deploying a computer
- installing the same (or higher) managed version of the client
- and registering it to that user's account
That's surprisingly awkward!
Is that deliberate?
It seems like it would be a common use case:
Suppose ServerA for User-ITAdmin dies; and I need to pull the latest backup of key accounting files immediately to DesktopB for User-Accountant so they can access and work with them in single user mode, while a replacement server is provisioned and fully restored.
Or suppose a HyperV Server running VM1 to VM4 dies; and I want to first restore the VM2 definition and disk image to a desktop; so I can host it from Win10 HyperV temporarily while we provision a replacement server, and bring everything back up.
Another scenario i was looking at trying:
One of the things I was considering trying to do was to setup a system that could be turned on, run a series of restore plans to restored key critical data from several different systems, operating under different user accounts, and then turn it off again; to create a secure offsite offline backup of that data.
This is all simply not really possible or supported, right?
