Physical server backup and recovery

Hello,

I would like to know how to recover a physical server from a backup stored in a repository.

The user guide shows how to recover to a VM from the backup but not to a physical server itself.

Is there a method to restore a physical server pulling out its backup image from a repository?

Acronis accomplishes that by using a bootable media that allows the server to execute a primary instance of the software and then pull the data from the repositories.

Regards,

Luis

I have already apporached NAKIVO on this.  This was my response:

That is not implemented yet. You could use this backup only for file recovery (https://helpcenter.nakivo.com/display/NH/Granular+Recovery) or backup export ( https://helpcenter.nakivo.com/display/NH/Performing+Cross-Platform+Recovery ) purposes and attach physical machine disk(s) in vmdk/vhdx format to existing VM manually. 

 

It's just the first phase of physical server support. To be continued in further releases.

Thanks for the information.

It is bummer this feature is not available. Hope Nakivo look forward into integrate this essential matter in their software.

Regards.
