  • summarize existing backups
  • restore any host:fs backup at any point in time to any target host

Prerequisites

  • SSH in place where a user on the backup server can perform a password-less remote login to the clients (using ssh keys) and execute the agent script as root.
  • Perl 5 on client and server.
