Hi all,

How do you test your backup integrity? Backup is being done by NTBACKUP in SERVER 2003.

No VM stuff here, all hardware... Checking SYSTEM STATE (AD etc.) and C:\, not file/data stuff as such.

Do you have a spare server and do a full restore or do you just check the file is there and there are no event log errors?

Best practise, hints, tips, heads up, gotchas... all welcome

Thanks in advance.

Kol.
