Trial SSR 2013 Server Edition
I'm testing SSR 2013 Server on an HP ML110 G7 with the embedded B110i SATA array controller. I have 4 Drives installed. Partitioned into 2 mirrored arrays. I installed SSR 2013 and did the initial backup and stored the image to the 2nd partition. All is well.
To test the recovery aspects, I booted with the SSR 2012 Recovery disk. Once running I load the SATA Array controller driver from a USB stick. Prior to doing this I don't see any hard drives , only the DVD, USB and SSR 2013 boot partition. After loading the driver I see a System PArtition and the C: drives from one of the partitions and that is exactly what I should see. I can't browse to find the recovery image on the 2nd partition. Not good.
If I go the Utilities, then Partition Table Operations, I can select the 2nd partition drive where the image is stored but can do anything. It's there and detected here but doesn't do me any good.
It is also detected when I view the SMEDump data file, everything is listed but I can't recover anything this way either.
So, is the this an issue with a Trail version? Does the Backup need to be on an external drive only? Is it an issue with the software itself or what?
I can't possibly purchase this product or recommend it to my clients if I can't test out everything for a successful recovery of an server.
Can someone advise me on this issue?
I attached the SMEDump file. The partition not showng up when I browse the computer is PhysicalDrive2
