    Complete disaster recovery of Solaris SPARC 10 x64 solution

    Hi All,

    I'd like to know if there is a software to backup the Physical Solaris Server as a whole image (more like Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery 2010 in Windows Server world).

    I tried to look for Netbackup 7 but it seems there is no way to try it for bare metal restore is possible ? (plus there is no download link to try that).

    Can anyone suggest one good software to achieve this please ?

    Thanks.

    I would look at Flash Archive which is an integrated Solaris feature, a little like AIX's makesysb or HPUX's Ignite.

    If you integrate Flash with a Solaris Jumpstart server, you will get a very fast recovery.

    Regards

    Yes, but you do have to consider application state. I.e I wouldn't use Flash archive to backup a system with an online Oracle database.

    ah yes you could be right mate :-| i was very happy when i found out that ZFS can use flash technology or at can least "dump" into another backup location (eg. NFS or samba) point.
