    Is it possible to copy files to/from a client via a workflow?  I would especially like to be able to transfer the files over the existing CV tunnels created already for the clients to use for backups (ports/connectivity are already there and also don't have to worry about NAT issues with trying to transfer direct)

    I have some use cases that I'm considering for this, if possible:

    • Push a script to a client, run it, then pull back the resultant file (likely a .zip)
    • CV DR Backup:  Copy the files to a remote client using the existing CV tunnel
    Think of something similar to SendLogs, which allows us to pull log files from any client.

    One option is to do backup/restore.

    We will add this option. I have wanted this feature for several use cases. We have the ability to do this, just need to make an easy to use API.

    @Rajiv

    Any idea when this option might be added?  Would REALLY like to have this option as it would open up lots of possible uses!  I'll be happy to help you test it too!
