SBS 2011 Restore, What Files On The Disk Are Required
Posted on 2012-03-15
What I Am Looking For:
I want to be able to kick of a restore on an SBS2011 from a disk that is smaller than the SBS2011 Installation disk, i.e. a cut down version of the installer disk with the minimum requirements to do a restore.
We are using a Dell server with an iDRAC installed which has a flash card on it that we can hold ISO images up to 2GB or entire folders up to 4GB that can be used boot the server from, etc, when troubleshooting. The SBS2011 installation disk is 6.5GB but I assume not all the files are required to do the restore part.
So essentially what I really want to do is create an SBS2011 boot disk that will get me to the restore your server screen that is under 2GB.
I am hoping that someone has already done this, but I did not have much luck browsing the web for answers.
