NetVault Bare Metal Recovery 10.5 - User Guide for NetVault Backup Server

Introducing Dell™ NetVault™ Bare Metal Recovery for Dell™ NetVault™ Backup Server

About Dell NetVault Bare Metal Recovery for Dell NetVault Backup Server

Dell NetVault Bare Metal Recovery (NetVault Bare Metal Recovery) for Dell NetVault Backup (NetVault Backup) Server is a specially packaged version of NetVault Bare Metal Recovery that provides offline bare metal protection for NetVault Backup Servers running on x86/x86-64-based operating systems that use locally-attached tape-based devices; it does not support shared VTLs (SVTLs) or Dell NetVault SmartDisk (NetVault SmartDisk). The bare metal recovery (BMR) image of the NetVault Backup Server is taken by a CD that is preloaded with a NetVault Backup Server, the Plug-in Server, and the drdaemon process. The BMR image can then be transferred to a direct-attached tape-based library or standalone tape drive for recovery in case disaster recovery is needed for the NetVault Backup Server.

About NetVault Bare Metal Recovery

The Plug-in Offline Client implements a block-by-block backup and restore technique to recover a system fully. This block-by-block operation takes the system offline and makes it unavailable. This process is done to either:
Backup: An Offline Backup backs up all aspects of a system (OS, applications, system settings, and so on). This process is ideal for new systems that have been configured for use.
Restore: An Offline Restore recovers a machine (even if it has no functional OS) to a previously configured state.
The Plug-in Offline Client includes a component known as VaultOS. The VaultOS is a minimal OS that is used to boot a target disaster recovery client system to prepare it for either backup or restore. This minimal OS starts the target client, loads all applicable device drivers, and leaves its hard drive in a state suitable for either backup or restore.
The Plug-in Server resides on the NetVault Backup Server and enables backup and recovery of a target client’s data by using the Plug-in Offline Client.
