Setting up a DR site with SSR 2011

Created: 08 Nov 2012 | 2 comments

Currenly have a single Dell PowerEdge T710 backed up with SSR 2011 ( The server is running 2008 R2 and is a DC and Hyper-V host. There are 3 2008 R2 guests (SQL 2008 R2, Exchange 2010) on the machine.

I want to set up another server in another location and do a full restore once a month or so. Dell does not make the T710 any longer, so I need to get a different machine. Wanted to see if anyone has done the Restore Anywhere from a T710 to another machine and what they have used.

Thanks for any input!

It will work .... I personally have restored backup onto very different machines and have never been let down ...

You can test your backup image by restoring it on a good desktop which supports hyper v too .... You won't be disappointed ....
