Password requirement for Script creation

Submitted on behalf of Oxilion I understand the need to secure the creation/modification of scripts. However, this should (in my opinion) only apply to actions done via the webGUI! Since one can login to the webGUI with just the device's backup-credentials. In the case the initial setup, as we're doing, one is already logged into the CLI as 'root' or equivalent super-user (i.e. with sudo permissions), so the need to ...more »

Manage Recovery Console Restore times

We would like to see an option to select when a restore runs, instead of manually setting it.

With something like the clienttool but for the recovery console you could run

scripts that add or remove devices or start restores and the like.
