BE 2012 Simplified Disaster Recovery - does it work?
I have tried a number of times to recover a remote computer via BE2012's offline (i.e. bare metal) SDR, but never got it to work.
There is no single point of failure - in every scenario (different customer sites) it stopped at a different point:
1. no trust relationship established with the temporary machine (got past that)
2. no restore selections visible for ANY backup (despite there being a number of SDR-successful backups)
3. restore selections visible, but after starting the restore job, nothing happens.
The knowledge base is not really helpful; naturally I took care to have a current BE, OS (W2K8 R2) and recovery disk (32 or 64-bit) and successful backups.
I would just generally like to know whether anybody got it to work "out of the box"
