[fa icon="pencil'] Posted by Doug Oakes [fa icon="calendar'] July 8, 2013 [fa icon="tags'] Managed Services, Data Backup & Recovery, Linux, How To Guide, Cloud Computing

Conduct an Asigra restore to a UNIX or Linux server using sudo credentials

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

Select restore location and truncate path, if required

Accept defaults
