Hello mandar_khanolka,

Thanks for the video representation of BMR.

Could you please clarify my below questions?

1.whether the Network drive is essential for Virtual machine? if the Virtual network adapter is wanted for intel or Brodcom NIC driver (because physical server is having  intel or brodcom driver so whether its will support  to virtual environment or not) 

2.Its similar to above question, In the video session, i could see the "LSI Adapter" has choosed in the device driver configuration wizard ,Is the virtual machine is needed for  HBA driver?

 

Thanks,

Bhoopathy

Hi Bhoopathy,

1. You need a NW adapter for your VM instance as the clients-masters communication happens over network. Even data restore happens over network. Your VM instance can have different network adapter than the original machine.  This is exactly shown in the demo.

2. If your data also belongs to SAN Lun and you want to restore that during BMR restore; then you may need to install those VM specific HBA driver into BMR using BMR Create Package wizard and then do Prepare TO Restore and then client restore.

BUt my observation is many HBA drivers are by default available in the WInPE 2.1 based SRT so you may not need to install them specifically. You would need them to install in case the SAN drives are not visible in BMR restore environment.

I hope this answers your question.

Thanks.
