RMS & Client--DR creation and restore soley from snapshot


Recommended Posts

Just to confirm something, I am under the impression that I can make a working Disaster Recovery CD *solely* from the backup image/set & snapshot stored during a Client backup. In my case, I'm backing up many clients to a central (harddisks) location using RMS. It's impractical to make a bunch of DR CDs in advance (other than one or two Servers) but I'm under the impression that I can make a DR CD *after the fact* (i.e. from the Retro client image even if the client PC is no longer useable/accessible).


After that, it's just a matter of following the DR recovery instructions by dealing with the harddrive (reformat, replace) and installing a "stub" OS then using Retrospect to restore files over the network.
