The PowerProtect Data Manager and Windows files that are part of the ISO image enable the system to boot and run the PowerProtect Data Manager system Recovery Wizard.
Note: Ensure that the hardware on the target computer is operational and that the target computer is similar in make, model, and hardware configuration to the source computer to be recovered. For more details, see the PowerProtect Data Manager File System User Guide.
The target host boots with the custom WinPE image, either locally or over the network. Run the PowerProtect Data Manager Bare Metal Recovery Wizard as follows:
The default value is the system date and time of the local host.
Note: The driver must not require a restart. The WinPE environment loads only in memory, and changes are not persistent across a restart. If a restart prompt appears, you may be able to ignore the prompt. Most NIC drivers are plug-and-play.
The size and number of hard disks that are added to the target machine should be either equal to or greater than the size and number of disks on the source machine.
Backups appear in the list in descending order from the most to least recent.
The Critical Volume page displays the volumes that will be restored and the option to enable a quick disk format.
The PowerProtect Data Manager BMR wizard fetches information to perform a BMR.
The Bare Metal Recovery Status displays the restore progress.
