  • Automate monthly restore
    Posted: 03-05-2014, 7:50 AM


    As part of the backup system we have, we currently have a monthly call logged to our 3rd line teams to do a few sample restores for each client to ensure the backups are actually there and restores work.

    I am trying to automate this task by using workflows and have made some good progress. 


    In short, the workflow currently has as input parameters a restore sourch path and a client group. It gets 2 random clients from each client group and does a restore to a fixed destination client, creating a folder for each client. It then emails me the results


    The only issue is  that I haven't seen a way for the source path (e.g. what is restored) to be randomized which is why I currently set it as an input. 


    Is that possible in any way? It would also have to be a random based on operating system.

    I am really curious if anyone is doing something like this to actually test the backups being done.
