NBU 7.5 BMR Linux dissimilar system recovery

Created: 21 Sep 2012 • Updated: 13 Apr 2014 | 1 comment
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Does anyone know if it is possible to do a dissimilar BMR restore on a Red Hat linux box?  I have everything configured and can successfully restore to identical hardware but I am looking to try out dissimilar restores like I can do with Windows machines.  Is this possible?  If it is in the documentation, I can't find it.  If it can be done, can anyone shed some light on how to do it?

Thanks in advance.
