When restoring files to an alternate host, the receiving machine must have a CDPAgent installed, and be placed into 'recovery mode'.
This is a mode of operation that uses only the executable binary for receiving data, and does not require a module or driver to be installed.
On a Windows machine, this is accomplished using the options available inside the R1Soft Windows Agent service properties.
On a Linux machine, this is handled thru editing the init script. ( Which is a link to /usr/bin/buagentctl, by default).
1. Open the Services window, highlight the R1Soft Windows Agent, and right-click to select "Properties".
2. Stop the running R1Soft Windows Agent service by clicking on "Stop".
3. Add the text " -r " (without quotes) to the field labeled "Start parameters".
4. And last, click on "Start" to restart the R1Soft Windows Agent service.
This will successfully place the Windows R1Soft Agent into recovery mode.
1. Open a shell, and stop the buagent service.
2. Edit /etc/init.d/buagent using your favorite editor, and change the contents of the line
3. And last, save the /etc/init.d/buagent file, and restart the agent service.
This will successfully place the Linux R1Soft Agent into recovery mode.
