Scheduling Restore

You can schedule a time for a restore plan to execute. Only the restore process can be scheduled — all other operations must be performed manually in the Orchestrator UI.

To schedule a restore plan:

  1. Navigate to Orchestration Plans.
  2. Select the plan. From the Launch menu, select Schedule.


Right-click the plan name and select Launch > Schedule.

  1. Complete the Schedule Plan wizard:

  1. At the Schedule Options step, set the Scheduled execution toggle to On, and choose whether you want to run the plan on schedule or after any other plan.
  • If you want to run the plan at a specific time, select the Schedule on option, click the Schedule icon, set the desired date and time, and click Apply.
  • If you want to run the plan after another plan, select the Schedule after option and click Choose a Plan. Then, in the Select Plan window, select the necessary plan and click OK.

For a plan to be displayed in the Available Plans list, it must be ENABLED as described in section Running and Scheduling Restore Plans.

  1. At the Ransomware Scan step, choose whether you want to check restore points created for machines included in the plan for possible ransomware.

By default, Orchestrator checks 10 recently created restore points for each machine and halts the plan if all the restore points are infected. However, you can specify the maximum number of restore points to check and instruct Orchestrator to restore the machine to the selected recovery location without connecting it to any network.

  • Ransomware scan is supported only for Windows-based machines.
  • Ransomware scan is supported for restore points stored in on-premises repositories only.

  1. At the Summary step, review configuration information and click Finish.

You can disable a configured schedule if you no longer need it. To do that, set the Scheduled execution toggle to Off at the Schedule Options step of the Schedule Plan wizard.
