Data protector - real world restore
Posted on 2007-04-05
I have data protector 5.50 and I'm worried about it's effectiveness in real world data restoration situations.
Restoring files from file servers and databases are OK, but when it comes to restoring active directory and exchange, I can only restore to the original location and their is no option to restore to a alternate locale. Needless to say, this doesn't bide well for disaster recovery or setting up lab environments or general recovery procedures (restore to original location button makes me nervous).
Am I missing something or is this just the limitations of the product? If their are ad ons or upgrades I need to make things easier, please tell me.
