Bare Metal Restore sizing.
Has anyone of you ever sized an BMR solution?
I have several doubts about it.
A) Space requirements for BMR software installation
TKG says the following:
"The BMR server requires 4 megabytes of disk space plus approximately 1
KB of disk space for every 2 clients. Each Boot image on the Boot
Server will require 100 to 800 KB of disk space."
How much space am I going to need for each boot image?
Is a boot image created for each of my clients? if so, am BMR is going
to backup a boot image each time the client is backed up? in this case
I have to calculate the space on disk according the backup policies for
each one of my clients.
am I going to create ONLY one boot image per platform I 'm going to
backup (one image for SUN, another for NT, another for AIX)? This way
I'm going to use much less space than the above scenario.
How often are the boot images refreshed? How BMR is going to realize
that a client has upgraded its OS, when others have not?
B) Shared Root Tree
For the SRT TKG states: "Each Shared Root Tree (SRT) on the File server
will require 200 to 400 MB of disk space".
The same questions as above. Is a SRT created each time a client is
I've calculated the space Im going to need considering I have 6 clients
(2 sun, 2 aix and 2 NTs), also that I only need one boot image per
platform (3 in this case), and also one SRT per platform too.
This makes a total of 606 MB.
Are this calculations right?
BMR Server 1 4MB
BMR Client 6 3.0Kb
Boot image 3 2MB
Shared Root Tree (SRT) 3 600 MB
Thanks in advance.
