I have two Windows servers located in different geographic location. One server is used as file server (i.e. shared location and have a directory tree with around 60 Gb of files).
I need to have the same directory tree on another server in another city and keep those files in sync. They don't need to be 'live' sync (i.e. it could be a few hours or a day diff but they should be kind of 'close' content). There are a few utilities that could sync files but I want to start with Windows Server Backup and Restore utility.
My plan is to create a backup once a day and then restore it on another server. I think that way they will be in 'close' sync. Since the destination is remote/network server it will erase previous backups and I will have only one backup at a time and this will be fine. I see it creates a folder called
WindowsImageBackup on target server.
Question: I know how to setup and schedule backup procedure but could I setup automatic i.e. Scheduled Restore process on destination server?
I mean e.g. I will backup at midnight (it'll take a few hours) and in a few hours destination server will start automatic restore process from that latest backup.
If this is supported, I'm trying to figure out how to do it so I can automate the recovery and scheduled it accordingly to occur after the backup and copy completes.
