Exchange 2010, Windows Server Backup (bare metal) restore?
Nice start to Monday. Suspect hardware failure on my Exchange 2010 Server Box running on Windows 2008 (non R2)
I have done a full bare metal backup last Friday.
Question is if the original Server has failed beyond repair (suspect water damage from roof leak last week) then can I:
Recover the Bare Metal backup from Friday onto a newer server (it is a different hardware spec though, the original one was an Intel Server and this one is a HP DL360 G7)
Provision a VM and mount the Bare Metal VHD and see if it boots after these adjustments:

Your good advice will be much appreciated :-)
