How to Restore From Zmanda Sentinel

The restore feature of Zmanda Endpoint Backup can help you restore data from one PC to another. It can be directly done from the Zmanda Sentinel. This feature makes it easy to set up a brand-new system. You can also have your data restored on the existing system in case of data loss or a system crash.

The IT administrators and owner can perform restoration for other users in the organization. However, end-users and finance administrators can perform restores for their own devices.

The data can be restored to the same PC or some other PC linked to Zmanda Endpoint Backup. This guide will explain how to restore using the Zmanda Sentinel.

How to Configure Restore for Your Own Device?

Follow the below steps to restore your data using Sentinel.

Note: Before you start the restore, make sure you have at least one backup added to your device. Also, the destination device should be registered on Zmanda Endpoint Backup, which means you need to install Zmanda Endpoint Backup on the destination device and log in to your account for a successful restore.

Step 1. Login to Zmanda Sentinel and click Restore from the left navigation panel.

Step 2. Click Configure Restore.

Step 3. In the opened frame, select the source device and click Next

Step 4. You can either restore on the same device or a different device linked to your Zmanda Endpoint Backup account. If you wish to restore data on the source device, select Restore to the same device option. And if you want to restore to another device, select Restore to a different device option.

When you select Restore to a different device, you need to choose the device as well.

Once all selections are made, click Next.

Step 5. You need to select the drives where you wish to make the restore. For more details on drive mapping, please refer to our detailed guide.

Step 6. The last step in the restoration process is to choose the backup you want to restore.

It can be the latest backup, a backup that is taken before a specific date, or a granular recovery.

If you wish to perform granular recovery, please go through our guide on the same.

For the latest backup, select the Latest option and for a specific date, select the Custom date.

When you opt for the custom date option, you need to select a date and time to start the restore.

If there is no backup taken before the selected date, you will be notified with an error message for the same. In such a case, you can change the date or opt for the latest backup.

Once the restore starts, you can check its status via Your Restore table. 

How to Configure Restore for Other Users?

To configure restores for other users, you need to click on Restore under Organization Management.

Next, click on Configure Restore option and when the frame shows up, select the source user. Once you select the source user, choose the device for restoration.

You can then follow all the steps from step 4 to complete the restore process.

Your Restore Table

The table will contain details about all the restores that were triggered since the account was activated. You can know the source and destination device, the restore start date, and its status.

The status of your restore can be completed, in progress, or failed. The Filter button at the top right of the table allows you to filter restore jobs based on the status.

You can even choose table columns as per your requirements.

Click on Choose columns option on the table and tick the checkbox for the columns you want to display on your screen.
