I am trying to simulate a disaster recovery of one of our client.  He has an SBS 2003 Std and is being backed up with Backup exec 12. backup seems to be working fine as log does not show any errors.  Could anyone tell me what is the procedure to restore the server correctly.  All documentation i found on symantec site focus on SBS 2000 not SBS 2003 and it is a bit misleading

i personally don like to use backup exec for windows to do disaster recovery.

I usually backup exec system recovery (another product) which is better for disaster recovery purpose.

In Backup exec, it is use IDR

For exact steps by steps, symantec has a support document to restore sbs 2003 as below

well, as my first post, i personally don like use backup exec for windows to do disaster recovery, because you got these issues always.

I have only get 2 successful DR plan going for 10 of them.

BE is just not up to the job to do one. Especially you trying to restore to a disimiliar hardware.


and you need to nearly rebuild from scratch. so which part you gone to BSOD?


I will try out BESR and see whether that works for the client.

Granular recovery for Microsoft Exchange

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

So what I did was install a fresh windows 2003 server.  restored the system state and done a repair of the OS.  After that the BSOD kept appearing as soon as the windows loading screen is shown

well, i think it is very hard for me to help you as i wont have access to your network.

the next option will be consult symantec technical support.

they will able to go through what you have select for backup, go through whether IDR is a better solution then this.
