I am guessing no one uses BMR on Windows then :-)
During alot of my testing yesterday, I have identified that "corrupt"
driver messages you get do seem to be related to "drivers" that are not
compatible with the Cut-Down version of Windows.
By going to a vendor specific site, I obtained some older drivers. After
buring a few iso images and testing, I got to the stage where I could
actually see what was happening at the client end, and watch as
NetBackup recovered the Server.
Trial and Error it was ........ ! certainly was not as smooth as "Backup
Exec System Recovery". More interesting, is that the Guidelines for BMR
state it can recover a Windows System in less than 15 mins.
Do not agree with this (so far), as my test box being a quad core
processor with 8GB Ram has taken 42 mins to fully complete.
Again, more testing to be done. But still interested if anyone else is
using the product.
For Info, I am able to recover a System using BESR in 4 mins from the
point of recovering until recovery has completed.
