VM from baremetal backup
Just looking at disaster recovery after reading another thread, we use server 2008 R2 and do a baremetal backup, if we do have a disaster what prog can I use to run the baremetal as a vm? I currently use virtualbox for creating base images etc so happy with that, possible to use that? Would it just be a case of main server fails, just boot up the vm, all back on line and everyone happy till server sorted or is that too simistic a view?

Does your backup solution create that as a vhd?

Now thats a good point! Presumed it did (we just use winxows backup) but if it didnt couldnt i just run a disk2vhd to create one?

Yes, think that's what I was after, the bare metal backup produces a vhd which I can load up in Virtualbox.

That could prove very useful. And very handy to know that it's possible.
