Loading drivers using the Universal Recovery Console

This feature lets you add any drivers that were not included in the ISO image but are required for a successful bare metal restore.

When creating a boot CD, you can add necessary drivers to the ISO image. After you boot into the target machine, you also can load storage or network drivers from within the Universal Recovery Console (URC).

If you are restoring to dissimilar hardware, you must inject storage controller, RAID, AHCI, chipset, and other drivers if they are not already on the boot CD. These drivers make it possible for the operating system to operate all devices on your target server successfully after you restart the system following the restore process.

Complete the steps in one of the following procedures to load drivers using the URC:

Loading drivers in the Universal Recovery Console using portable media

The following tasks are prerequisites for this procedure.

Complete the following procedure to use a portable media device to load drivers in the Universal Recovery Console (URC).

7.
Expand the Other devices list.

This list shows the drivers that are necessary for the hardware but are not included in the boot CD.

11.
In the Info window, click OK to acknowledge that the driver successfully loaded.

Loading a driver in the URC using Chromium

The following tasks are prerequisites for this procedure.

Complete the following procedure to use the Chromium browser that comes installed on the boot CD to load drivers while in the URC.

6.
Expand the Other devices list.

This list shows the drivers that are necessary for the hardware but are not included in the boot CD.

10.
In the Info window, click OK to acknowledge that the driver successfully loaded.

Selecting a recovery point and initiating a BMR

After the Universal Recovery Console (URC) is accessible on the bare metal restore (BMR) target machine, you must select the recovery point that you want to restore.

Navigate to the Core Console to select which recovery point you want to load, and then designate the recovery console as the destination for the restored data.

This task is a step in Performing a bare metal restore for Windows machines. It is part of the process for Using the Universal Recovery Console for a BMR.

If performing a BMR for a Linux machine from the Core Console, then this task is also a step in Performing a bare metal restore for Linux machines It is part of the process for Launching a bare metal restore for a Linux machine using the command line.

1.
In the Rapid Recovery Core Console, from the list of protected machines, click the name of the protected machine you want to restore.
2.
Click Recovery Points.
4.
Select Recover to any target machine using a boot CD.
5.
Select I already have a boot CD running on the target machine.

Description

IP Address

The IP address of the machine to which you want to restore. This is identical to the IP address displayed in the URC.

Authentication Key

The specific password to connect to the selected server. This is identical to the Authentication Key displayed in the URC.

7.
Click Next.

If the connection information you entered matches the URC, and if the Core and the target server can identify each other properly on the network, then the volumes for the selected recovery point are loaded, and the Disk Mapping page appears. In this case, your next step is to map volumes.

8.
Proceed to About disk mapping for a bare metal restore to learn about your disk-mapping options.
