So the GRE User Guide and the Product Announcements has a wrong information because it says that the VM with Windows Operating System is not supported by the Cached restore from Catalyst Devices.

Hello,

If you have already installed 9.07 in your Linux mount proxy you may open a support request.

My virtual machines are Windows guest os, so the GRE user guide show:

Cached GRE of Windows Guest VM is not supported from StoreOnce Catalyst device. Windows Guest VM can be recovered in Non-Cached mode using Windows mount proxy.

I can't do the cached  GRE from CAtalyst devices even i use a Linux Mount proxy, right ? And the GRE change to the Non-cached Recovery automatically in this case.

My understanding is that with A.09.07 all VEPA backups that go to StoreOnce Catalyst automatically become a Cached. There is no way to make them Non-Cached afterwards. This means with the current limitation (that will be resolved soon) you will need to have a Linux mount proxy in addition to your Windows mount proxy.

Sebastian,

I understand that in this case ( 9.07 + Storeonce Catalys Devices ) all the backups will be showed as "Cached" but if all our VMs are Windows based we can't restore them using the GRE.

So, even i put one Linux Mount Proxy i can't restore te Windows based VM. Or i can ? Because the GRE user guide says not.

For last, if is impossible to use the Cached GRE for the Windows based VM, i need use the Non-Cached option as an option.

Yes, you can do cross operating system restores with a Linux mount proxy. It requires that NTFS-3G is installed on the Linux mount proxy and has some limitations apply (handling NTFS ACLs).
