  • Creating the base recovery instruction files
  • Adding machines to the plan
  • Generating the disaster recovery plan

  • Restoring the STORServer database with DRM

Note that there is another advanced course on use of bare metal recovery using Cristie Bare Metal Restore or FastBack Bare Metal Restore, so those products are not covered in this course.

This course requires completion of ST102 (STORServer Enterprise Backup Appliance Administrator Training).
