    Default Windows DR

    Hi,
    usually I work with AIX systems and really few Windows clients.
    Today a customer of mine asked for a Disaster Recovery solution for Windows systems.
    For AIX systems I wrote a mksysb -> TSM Archive procedure and I was wondering if there is something better than ASR diskette + TSM Client CD for Windows (XP, 2003).
    Any hints? Something like to make Norton Ghost to be able to send image files to TSM.

    Thanks.

    hi,
    i wouldn't recommend using ASR because it rarely works ...
    i've been using CBMR (Cristie Bare Machine Recovery) which integrates very well with TSM
    cheers

    I just tested it some years ago and it was so hard to configure it (I remember that I missed to label the TSM client CD with the correct label and it was impossible to go on with the restore).

    I knew Cristie from when I was an IBMer (7 years ago, more or less) but never meet someone that actually use it. I will look for a "Try&Buy"...

    Thanks.

    I've come across some admins who've been integrating a TSM BA client on to a bootable CD with a Windows-like OS and using that as a restore basis - BartPE is the environment, and IBM have published a field guide on using it with TSM for BMR: http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview...27005028&aid=1

    -Cristie is the fatest way,
    -ASR, I already got to restore a prod server with it and it's worked! but it's take lots of time!!
    - you can do a Image backup of your system drive (c$), when restore with a Winpe or barpe including a tsm plugins, that's work too

    but the as I said the fatest is CBMR and work great, it save our Windows Admins life more than one time here!
