Restore from a Media Restore Server
When a Media Restore Server (MRS) device is shipped to you, you must attach the device to your network. When the MRS is attached and started up, you can begin restoring files from it.
The Restore Wizard guides you through requesting a restore. If an MRS is attached to your network, the device is as an option in the Restore Wizard. Then the Restore Request page lets you select files to restore and restore options.
To restore from a Restore Device
1.In the Restore tab, click New Restore.
2.The Restore Wizard page opens. The restore device attached to your network appears as the last option on the list.
3.Select the restore device.
5.The Restore Request page opens. The Restore Request page has two tabs:
a.The Selection tab lets you browse or use rules to select the files to restore.
b.The Options tab lets you handle file overwrite situations, restore to a different computer than the files were backed up from, specify system state restore, and schedule the restore
6.Select files to restore and selected restore options.
8.Review the information on the Restore Request Confirmation page and click Done.
After you restore your data to your computer, test it to ensure the data has been restored and the associated applications are operating correctly.
If your network does not support DHCP, download the LVLocator tool.
LV Locator allows you to manage the MRS device and configure a static IP address for the MRS device if your network does not support DHCP. The system that LVLocator is executed from must reside on the same subnet as the MRS device.
To use the LVLocator utility
1.In the LieVault Web Console, click Downloads at the top of the page.
The Downloads page opens.
2.Click the Utilities tab.
The Utilities page opens.
3.Click LVLocator to download the installer package.
4.Click Run to run the LVLocator.exe, or click Save and specify a location to save the LVLocator.exe. The software scans your network and locates the MRS devices available.
5.Locate the MRS device in the list.
6.Uncheck DHCP Enabled and enter the appropriate TCP/IP information for your network.
7.Proceed with the Restore Wizard procedure above to complete restore process. If the MRS restore device does not appear in the Restore Wizard as an option to restore from, contact Support.
If the restore job does not launch and show a progress bar on the Restore tab in the HP CloudRecover Web Management Portal portal, perform the following tasks:
1.Restart the LiveVault service on the MRS by rebooting the device.
2.Restart the LiveVault service on the target server you are restoring to.
3.Confirm you have imported the encryption key to the target server if you are redirecting the data to another agent / server. For more information, see Redirect Restored Files.
