  • Rest API request to do a full fileserver restore for a point in time
    Posted: 01-02-2019, 7:11 PM

    I have a file server that I need to do a full restore from the day before and then I will run an internal tool to check all the files. I am trying to write a script to do the full restore from a point in time but don't see a doc or an example that I can work off of with the Rest API. Thanks

    Hi ,

    you can use this REST call for an example for restore -

    the other option is to use a workfow that comes with CV by default called Demo_FileSystemBackupRestore in which you could leverage the restore portion of that by replaceing the XML with the XML useing the "Save As" option or modify that existing workflow (save a copy).


    So create the restore in the GUI as normal and then select the option to "Save As" instead of actually running the restore. And then use the XML to pass into the rest API call or use it in a workflow.
