Restore Client - login to

Jump to solution

Hi,

VDP 6.1. I'm studying how to do file level recovery and Admin Guide says I must access the VDP Restore Client:

https://<IP_address_of _VDP_appliance>:8543/flr

It's asking me for username and password ("Basic mode") and I don't understand what I must to enter.

When I use the same credentials that are OK in

ttps://<VDP_Appliance>:8543/vdp-configure/

- default username root and password, Restore Client says:

"Login failed. Cannot locate vm in vCenter". Which vm ? Must I configure something first ?

Sorry, but to use the FLR on Linux, you have to log on in a Linux virtual machine with GUI (and Flash enabled) and that virtual machine must be backed at least once.

Take a look at the VMware KB article: Logging in to the vSphere Data Protection Restore Client fails with the error: Cannot locate login c...

To resolve this issue, log in to a virtual machine where a backup job has been created and run to allow for file level restores.

You are open the File Restore in a Windows or Linux VM? That VM is backuped by VDP too?

Must I open this from vm ? What if I have only Linux VMs with command line onlty ?

Are there any alternatives to do file lever restore ?

Here is what I investigated with this isuue additionally:

1). you could use any VM that has GUI to see possible file level restores from all VMs - when using advanced login.

2). you can restore any of these vm files only to machine where you run the browser restore client

am I right ?

I found another issue with FLR, probably will create other thread for this.
