This may be a stupid question...
Backups including System & Service State, & certain Program files folders are taken with Backup Exec 12.5.
OS is Windows Server 2003 (SP2 or R2)
If a server dies completely and the backup needs to be restored, but identical hardware is NOT available - what are the implications of the the Hardware being different?
Will Windows completely reject the System State on the backup tape?
If this will work, is it due to some special functionality provided by Backup Exec (&/or certain versions therein?)
