complete restore of a server using backup exec 11d
Posted on 2008-11-14
I have several servers that are backed up with backup exec 11d with remote agents installed on each machine. I do a full backup on all the servers every night.
I would like to know what the easiest procedure would be to reinstall completely from a tape backup, onto another server in the event a server is damaged.
Do i need special products? I assume I would need to make sure that the hard drives were partitioned and formatted prior to doing this but I guess my real answer would be how would I get a machine to recognize the tape drive and initialize the restore.
would I need to tkae any special steps if it's a DC or an exchange server?
