VMware GRE should support recovery to physical mount proxy

Status : Delivered
over 2 years ago

Brief description:

This idea is to enable VMware GRE to recover individual files/folders back to the physical mount proxy instead of a target VM. Since the data is locally accessible on the mount proxy (cached/non-cached) the recovery operation should be really quick.


This allows faster restores and is pretty handy for the backup operator in case they don't have knowledge of or permissions to the target VM.


Use a virtual backup VM/proxy as a temporary restore location.
