Hello Bahadir,
Thanks for all the valuable points.
Need to confirm one thing more :
1) Does BMR also support veritas file System:-Mean to say if system is down it will boot the system ( OS) by BMR recovery process but does this revcovery also recover the Veritas File System as it is and do we need to mention this somewhere in the SRT?
Please let me know.

1) Have you installed BMR package and then created the BMR database? NBU 6.5.4 is the min version supporting BMR for master server running on RHEL5.
Download the BMR and BBS packages from the link below. You can install these directly.

2) No, it does not. You can use any system providing DHCP service. By the way, you don't need to hava a boot server in physical. Boot server running in a VM is supported.

3) You need to upgrade also BMR to 6.5.5 so it doesn't matter you perform it now or later.

You need to have a Windows boot server in order to leverage BMR for Windows based systems. Again, it can be VM. Instructions are clearly defined in BMR Admin Guide and it's a straihtforward procedure.

Hello Geeks,
Need your help in implementing BMR.
We have to implement BMR for our two critical server( Windows 2003).
They get backed up by our master server which is Linux 2.6 RHEL5.-Netbackup 6.5.4.
Now we are thinking to implement BMR for these so that we do not have to load OS manually .
As per us we need:
1) We have to make master server BMR master server too:-We have licence but the BMR is not highlighted in the console.
     Even not showing in additional products of Unix options ?
2) We have to create one BMR boot servers and we are planning for PXE boot
So, do this boot server need to be DHCP server?
3) Shall we upgrade our master server to 6.5.5 prior to implementing BMR as we have to do it next month anyways.
How to correctly setup a Shared resource tree to recover Windows 2003box with netbackup 6.5.5
Please advise and let us know any additional things that we should take care prior to or while implemeting BMR
