I saw that demo at the local BMR presentation in Chicago.  It was pretty
cool, especially on NT side.  However, I'm implementing the BMR
functionality on the Solaris side by myself, and quite successfully, I might
add.  Since BMR is an option, and is licensed per SERVER(although quite
honestly I have no idea how much it is, I'd imagine it'll be fairly
expensive), I'm very happy to overlay my existing Jumpstart infrastructure
with a few packages that I wrote that do 80%+ of BMR.  But in the mixed
environment, and especially in the NT/Win2k environment, BMR is way too
cool. :)

Hey all just for the record...I saw a great presentation here at Vision on
Veritas' newest aquisition, Bare Metal Restore (BMR).  It is sweet!  We
trashed an NT laptop and witnessed it being recovered, we trashed a Sun box
and watched the same...VERY COOL STUFF.

BMR is integrated with NBU in that it uses its TIR capabilities to get all
the data back to a particular point in time as well as its own meta data
that it collects during backup.

Hi, gurus,

did anyone successfully restore OS?  I had hard time restore hard links.  I
want to restore to an alternative client.  but, no matter whether 'rename
hard links'is checked or not, hard links were not restored properly.  So I
was not able to boot from restored OS.  Did I miss something?
