BE 2012 - Cannot restore from Duplicate data automatically in job

BE 2012 SP3. Need to be able to automatically restore at a pre-determined time data that is on a Media server that is a duplicate of the original data on another Media server (in another site). Don't see a way to do this...when doing a restore I can only restore data from the original media server, not the duplicate. What is the purpose of performing a "Duplicate" job if I cannot restore the Duplicate data?

2) Yes - but when I go to do the restore it doesn't ask me "where" the restore will come from...so how do you force a restore to pull from the duplicate data set...do you highlight the Duplicate job and click "Restore"?

1. No. There has never been a way do do automatic restores, either from the console or through scripting 2. when you select the server for restore you will be presented with all the backup sets including the duplicates. You can choose which backup set to use

Take a look at this - why

Take a look at this - why could task scheduler in Windows be used to run a Powershell command that restores? Is there no way to do it even in the PS commands mentioned in this article I found?
