I get conflicting  views about following...
Can DPM do a BMR (Bare Metal Recovery) of Server 2003? I have it setup and it shows that it is backing up ok. What happens if I have to restore it? Will it work? Is this addressed somewhere by Microsoft? Has anyone actually done this (I don't have lab to test)?

The Server in question is installed on Hyper-V.

Unsupported Scenarios

The following scenarios are not supported for BMR:

    Computers running Windows Server 2003.
    Computers running client operating systems like Windows XP or Windows Vista or Windows 7.
    A DPM server cannot protect itself for BMR.
    Disk-Tape protection is not supported for BMR. However, long-term to tape with short-term to disk (D-D-T) is supported.
