How to RESTORE VERDE Images/User Data When Deployment is via STATIC in the Desktop Policies
Product Line: VERDE
STATIC deployment method is not typically used, but, if there is a need, you may at some time need to recover from a server crash, a user image corruption, etc.
Refer to the following. You ARE dependent upon regular, scheduled backups.
For proper deployment, set the Desktop Policy/Deployment to "STATIC"
User robinpurv accessed the Win1021h1 guest image and installed Chrome. Then shut the image down. Then accessed it again and installed FileZilla and shut it down again:
After the second shutdown, here's what the directory structure looks like:
Now, back up the entire /robinpurv/Win1021h1/ directory and contents. YOU MUST capture/copy/backup all hidden files.
Now delete the robinpurv directory. It's to simulate a crash or corruption of an image. If it's merely a corruption, the customer can delete the entire directory and replace it like I'm going to.
Move the contents of the backed up /robinpurv/Win1021h1/ to the new, empty directory.
Take note, root owns the directories. Run the following command:
chown -R vb-verde:vb-verde <robinpurv>
Now, user can log into their image.
All their "stuff" is back.
