Recently I covered in a Step-by-Step video tutorial, the new Windows Server Backup features in Windows Server 2008.
I also demonstrated in another Screencast the Bare-Metal restore of Windows Small Business Server 2008 (using Windows Server Backup).
I got a question on Neto-Chat: Can you perform Bare-Metal restore of Windows Server 2008 to a different hardware using Windows Server Backup.
I haven’t tried this and I am testing it at the moment. As usually, the results will be posted as a Step-by-Step video tutorial.
The question has an interesting twist. Can you restore Windows Server 2008 running on a physical machine, to a virtual machine. For example you might want to backup a server running in a production environment or duplicate it in a test network.
What about the opposite – moving an installation of Windows Server 2008 from a Virtual Machine, to a physical one.
The videos are coming!!!
