Can you guys please tell me what would be the best way to test a full back up done in a Server 2003-2008? How to do a full recovery? Will you perform the full recovery test on a workstation?. I have WINDOWS BACKUP or I also use Veritas Backup exec.

Please advise.

Best way is in a lab environment, perhaps using a virtual machine ( ESXi Host as an example )

You do not want to do this on your production LAN.

I hope this helps !

Not really. You need to create an empty VM for your specific OS usually, and then restore.

What type oF VM  are you using

VMware
Hyper-V
XEn .....

You can virtualize the image and create new VMware machine from this image. Does your backup solution provide options to transfer the veritas backup image into vmdk or vhd file?

You can use any of these Windows Backup or Veritas Backup. Both are good.
