Boot Image: The plug-in scans the Linux NetVault Bare Metal Recovery Client machine and incorporates required system information, that is, NIC card driver files, and various OS data files into a CD creation file — entitled “linuxboot.iso”. This file can be restored to the NetVault Backup Server where it would be used to create a bootable CD. This CD is then used to boot the same Linux NetVault Bare Metal Recovery Client the Boot Image data was taken from to prepare it for the recovery of its backed-up System Image information.
System Image: The plug-in performs a DR backup of the entire client system. This backup includes all system information for the Linux NetVault Bare Metal Recovery Client, including all partition and Disk Boot Record information.
The Boot Images data backup incorporates driver information files from the /lib/modules directory on the client machine. Before backing up this data, ensure that proper device information files for all the devices used by the target client are available in the /lib/modules directory.
