DPM 2012 Bare Metal Recovery RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Is it possible to do bare metal recovery of vm to physical? I have Windows Server 2008 R2 (SharePoint 2010 web server) and it's Hyper-V and would like to do bare metal recovery to a physical HP Proliant DL360 G7 server.

    I did try it but it kept rebooting to recovery mode. I think it's drivers issues.

    Thanks

  • Thanks guys for the respond. We decided not take a chance and we just went with doing the manual way. Just moving those sites to the physical server manually. It worked fine with no issues. Thanks again.

  • Hi Hmandi,

    I have tried this before. I was not able to get it to work. Has anyone else been able to get this to work?

  • Hi,

    It's not officially supported - see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/249694 - but you can try installing the operating system on the DL360 first, then try restoring just the systemstate from WINRE and see if the server is bootable after that.  If so, then you can try doing ILR of data folders that are in the VHD back to the physical server, or another location that has a DPM agent installed on it.  Not sure is systemstate has all the sharepoint components in the backup or not, so it's a gamble.
