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.

Benefit:

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.

Workaround:

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