To set up the auto restore jobs for Solarwinds it needs to be done over the Recovery Console application, and this has to be installed over one specific server with enough free space available, since the files chosen from each server will be restored in that same machine.

To install the Recovery Console use these instructions:

  1. The application can be downloaded from the links:
  1. Start the installer.
  2. Change the default installation folder if needed. Click Install to start the installation.
  3. When the installation process is completed, click Finish.

Once installed, you have to create restore jobs on the Recovery Console for each server individually, specifying which file to restore for the test. To create a restore jobs, follow the steps below:

  1. Open the Recovery Console from the Desktop icon.
  2. Click on the Add button to add a new device to restore from.
