Troubleshoot restore failure due to an offline client

This article applies to:

  • OS: Windows
  • Product edition: inSync Cloud and On-Premises

Problem description

The restore operation starts but fails shortly when:

  • A user initiates a restore from inSync Client. 
  • An inSync Administrator initiates a restore from the inSync Management Console

This failure is also observed during restore of backup share as well as restore of  system and application settings.

Restore process

When a restore is triggered either from inSync Client or from inSync Management Console:

  1. A restore request is generated.
  2. The inSync Client machine receives the restore request and the process to handle this operation on the client is called as inSync.exe.
  3. If the restore request is for configured backup shares, the restore process is handed over to inSyncUSyncer.exe.
  4. If the request is to restore the System and App settings, the request is routed through inSync.exe.
  5. The Server/Cloud also fetches the selected data for restore from the storage. 
    Note: During this operation, the restore request remains in a Queued state.
  6. After a while, the actual restore begins.

Cause

  1. The inSync Client is not connected to network or the inSync Client services are offline.
  2. The client machine is powered off.

Resolution

  1. Ensure that the inSync Client service is running and the client machine is connected to the network.
  2. Power on the inSync Client machine and initiate the restore again.
