Click "Next" to proceed to the following step.

6. On the next screen, define how frequently the report will be run. You can choose from the following options:

  • On-demand report - run when you manually execute it.
  • Minutely report - defines the period in minutes of report execution.
  • Hourly report - defines the starting minute of the report.
  • Daily report - defines the starting minute and day hours of report execution.
  • Weekly report - defines the start time in hours and minutes and days of week of report execution.
  • Monthly report - defines the start time in hours and minutes and days of month of report execution.
  • Yearly report - defines the start time in hours and minutes, days of month, and months of year of report execution.

Click "Next" to proceed to the following step.

7. On the next screen, define the receipients for the report. You can choose from users and groups on the CDP server, or specify e-mail addresses to deliver the report to.

Click "Next" to proceed to the following step.

8. On the next screen, select from several filters on which to include or exclude the tasks in the report.

  • Filtering by agent - only include tasks for the specified agents.
  • Filtering by task type - only include tasks of the specified types.
  • Filtering by task state - only include tasks of the specified states.
  • Filtering by task alert - include either tasks with alerts, or tasks without alerts.
  • Filtering by log message level - only include tasks that contain a log message with one of the specified levels.

Click "Next" to proceed to the following step.

9. On the next screen, choose the agents to filter the report on. Only tasks run for the specified agents will be included in the report. Tasks run against other agents, or not associated with an agent will not be included.

Click "Next" to proceed to the following step.

10. On the next screen, choose the task types to filter the report on. Only tasks of the specified types will be included in the report. Tasks of other types will not be included. You can choose one ore several of the following task types:

  • Data Protection Policy
  • Restore Files
  • Merge Recovery Points
  • Vacuum
  • Data Base Restore
  • Bare Metal Restore

Click "Next" to proceed to the following step.

The following step requires you to map the chosen filesystems to the devices on the target machine.

From the drop-down menu called "Click to Edit," select destination devices for each source filesystem.

Notice
The target device must be large enough to hold the filesystem.
Notice
Each target device can only be selected once.

Click "Next" to proceed to the following step.

11. Then you need to define the following options:

  • Reboot After Restore - Reboots the target host after the restore is performed. Select this checkbox to reboot your Agent after the Bare-Metal Restore is complete.
  • Check Filesystems After Restore - Checks the filesystems after the restore is performed.

Click "Next" to proceed to the following step.

12. On the "Summary" page, you will need to confirm the selected Bare-Metal Restore options. Each selected filesystem is listed, along with the name of the target device it is being mapped to.

Click "Restore" to start the Bare-Metal Restore task.

16. The data Restore is initiated. Click "OK" in the notification pop-up.

17. The Restore process starts and can take a while. You can go to the "Task History" screen to observe the task progress. See Accessing Task History.

The Task History page displays the State, Host, Type, Progress percentage, and the Started time stamp of the Bare-Metal Restore process.

Note
You can find more information about the Restore process by reading the Log Messages. The Log Messages for the selected Task are displayed at the bottom of the page.

17. When the process is complete, you can reboot the server you just Restored by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del or by executing the reboot command in the root shell.

Notice
Make sure you eject the Disk from the CD-ROM drive so the server will boot from the hard Disk.
Note
If the Disk you used for your Bare-Metal Restore is larger than the Disk you backed up previously, the free space on the new Disk will remain free. You can create a new Partition in this space.
