I need to test a backup/restore for the physical servers.  We use the Backup Exec version 12.5
Does Backup Exec has a functionality to do the whole image restore (bare-metal)? or is it files individually only?

Please advice.

No tapes.  We backup to disk only.

I am asking if there is a way with backup exec to restore the whole system, like bare metal restore; instead of individual files.

Hey,

By bare metal i guess you mean system recovery during boot and not through agents. So the question to your answer if Backup Exec 12.5 can do this, that is a no. What you need is Symantec backup exec System Recovery 8.5 Server Edition.

Are your corporate email signatures appalling?

Is it scary how unprofessional your email signatures look? Do users create their own terrible designs and give themselves stupid job titles? You can make this a lot easier for yourself by choosing an email signature management solution from Exclaimer today.

I see we do not have that system recovery.  so I guess I need to test backup/restore with old fashion way:
fiind like hardware to the prod system
install windows
install backup agent
restore backup to system
test...
