Thank you to all who attended the event last week at Fortrust where we discussed how we help clients with the DR planning, implementation ongoing management. We discussed premise solutions and DRaaS (DR to our cloud infrastructure) solutions as well. Thanks also to out partners: Fortrust, Faction and Zerto for participating. Many of you have asked for the presentation and I’ve posted it here for your convenience.
Conduct an Asigra restore to a UNIX or Linux server using sudo credentials
Verify that user is listed in /etc/sudoers file on restore target system
The sudo utility allows users root level access to some (or all) subsystems without requiring users to know the root password. Please look at documentation for the sudo utility for more information.
From Asigra restore dialog, choose files to be restored
Select Alternate location and click on ‘>>’
Enter server name or IP address for restore target and check both “Ask for credentials” and “‘sudo’ as alternate user’
Enter username and password for user configured in /etc/sudoers file
Enter “root” and same password as in previous step
Do NOT enter the ‘root’ password. The sudo utility uses the regular user’s password.
