Saving the Live DVD ISO image to media

When you download the Linux Live DVD file, it is stored as an ISO image in the path you specified. You must be able to boot the target Linux machine from the Live DVD image.

This task is a step in Performing a bare metal restore for Linux machines. It is part of the process for Managing a Linux boot image.

If performing a BMR on a virtual machine, this step is not required. Simply load the ISO image in a drive and edit the machine settings for that VM to start from that drive. You can also use virtual export to restore a Linux VM. For more information, see VM export.

Loading the Live DVD and starting the target machine

After you obtain the Live DVD ISO image, you need to start the Linux machine from the newly created Live DVD.

This task is a step in Performing a bare metal restore for Linux machines. It is part of the process for Managing a Linux boot image.

A Rapid Recovery splash screen displays and a terminal window opens, displaying the IP address and authentication password for the machine.

Connecting to the BMR target from the Rapid Recovery Core

After you start the target Linux machine with the Live DVD, this machine is ready for you to connect to it from the Core and begin the bare metal restore process. You can perform this process using any one of two methods:

Launching a restore from the Rapid Recovery Core Console. For more information, see Launching a bare metal restore for Linux.

Managing Linux partitions

When performing a BMR, the destination drive onto which you will be restoring data must have the same partitions as in the recovery point you are restoring. You may need to create partitions to meet this requirement.

You can launch the restore from the command line using the aamount utility, or you can launch the restore from the Rapid Recovery Core Console. If restoring using the user interface, you must first mount the partitions.

Managing Linux partitions is a step in Performing a bare metal restore for Linux machines.

You can perform the following tasks:
