Restoring dual-boot OS 9/ OS X machines? What's required?

Recommended Posts

I am completely unable to do a full disk restore of my mac clients which are dual-boot OS9/OSX machines. The backup server runs OS9, as do all the clients. I've tried the restores to OS9, and to OSX, with failures in both cases.

 

What must the environment be for this to succeed? Must both the Client AND the Server be OSX? Must the Retrospect Client be running *under* OSX and the restore done *to* OSX for this to work? Or, am I just doing something wrong and my setup *should* work?

 

Please to advise. Thanks.

Hi, this surely can't be that hard to answer? I've already looked in the KnowledgeBase and I'd like a definitive answer, rather than the half-hearted answers provided by the KB.

Yes, for dual boot systems, the backup and restore must be completed while the client is booted in OS X. The backup server can be booted in 9 or X for client backups and restores.

 

You must also install the same exact version number of Mac OS X you will restore. For example, if the client was backed up running 10.1.3, you must install Mac OS X 10.1.3.
