    Hi there,

    Lets say i have 2 servers:
    1. "Webserver" with a couple accounts active and cpanel running
    2. "Backupserver" with no accounts at all and cpanel running

    I just configured "Webserver" to backup his data to a NFS share folder on "Backupserver" using the cpanel backup utility. Also, i selectd "Incremental Backup" so i dont need to move all 100Gb everyday. I can restore all accounts to the "webserver" with no problems at all, but i also need to be able to restore those backup'd accounts to "Backupserver".

    So, I configured the backup utility on "Backupserver" as "Restore Only" and put the correct backup path, but when i click on "restore backups" i get the "daily" button, amd after i click on it I only get a empty list. I double checkd and all the account backups are there, however the "Backupserver" cannot see those accounts. Is it possible to do what i need? Thanks

    Just figured out...

    I also need to have "Incremental Backup" selected on the backup options of the server i'll restore the accounts. Now it's working just fine :)
