want to restore all the windows updates and security patches windows 2003 std RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I had taken the full backup with system  state for windows 2003 std edition. Original server went down.

    I want to restore this server from scratch. For this, created once blank VM for windows 2003 and installed SP2. Assigned, blank HDD with same size as original one.

    Please let me know, if i do a system restore on this new VM, will it be restore all the security patches/windows update to new VM (win 2k3 std)?.

  • A system restore will restore the system to the status when you performing the backup - if newer updates are installed before restoring, they will be removed.

  • It's just like a snapshot (or a ghost mirror) - system will restore to the status when you perform the backup.
