As of now, there’s not really a way to do a file restore to a different client, isn’t it? Is that coming? We can’t copy files directly from UrBackup Server either since they have wrong permissions and ownership.
I was testing it on a cloned VM and can’t seem to connect to the server. Is it because two identical clients exist on the network? Would it work if I shut the original one down?
[root@computer ~]# urbackupclientctl browse
Error getting file backups. No backup server found.
Should work, so the question is why it is unable to connect.
Background: To restore the files you need the tokens in /usr/local/var/urbackup/tokens and the correct client name. Since you have cloned the VM they should be present. The root token is also automatically installed if you install the client from the web interface via “Download client for Linux”.
Hmm, sorry, thought them connected via Internet. In the local network it will only use one of them, so you have to turn off the other one or connect the restore client via Internet mode (set internet only to true). You should also prevent backups of the restore client e.g. by removing all backup paths.
