VaultOS component

The Plug-in Offline Client includes a component known as VaultOS. VaultOS is a minimal OS that is used to boot a target DR client system to prepare it for backup or restore, depending on the plug-in in use. 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.

There are two versions of the VaultOS, one that uses a Linux boot loader and one that uses a Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE). The version that you choose to use also affects which Plug-in Offline Client features are available to use.

Review the following list of important notes regarding VaultOS. The things that you should be aware of varies depending on whether you are using the Linux-based VaultOS or the Windows PE-based VaultOS.
