SolarWinds Backup Help

Recovery Console interface

The main application window is divided into 2 panes:

  1. The "Devices" pane – this is where your devices are listed.
  2. The "Audit" pane – this is where you can view restore statistics for the device selected on the "Devices" pane.

At the bottom you can see a toolbar. It provides access to the main functions:

  • Add – add a new device to the Recovery Console.
  • Configure – edit settings for the selected device.
  • Launch BM – open a restore-only backup client for the selected device.
  • Remove – remove the selected device from the Recovery Console.
  • Advanced – edit common settings for all devices: enable email notifications on the statuses of recent recovery sessions or change the default local storage directory.

Additional options can be accessed through a context menu.

  • Force restore – start data recovery for the selected device right now (without waiting for a new backup session). If there is no data available for recovery, the option will be unavailable.
  • Abort – terminate all active recovery sessions related to the device. If there are no such sessions, the option will be unavailable.
