Performing redirected restores of utility
You may need to perform a
redirected restore of a utility partition if, during a disaster
recovery, the system being recovered has been renamed. A redirected
restore could also be required if a new system is replacing a
crashed system. In the latter case, the system being restored must
be the same model as the system originally backed up.
When doing a redirected restore of utility
partitions, the following conditions must be met:
Utility partitions, but not the data belonging to
the partitions, must be present on the system.
You must have Administrator rights to restore
Utility partitions being restored must belong to
the same vendor. For example, Dell utility partitions cannot be
restored to a Compaq system.
The size of the utility partition on which the data
is being restored must be equal or greater in size than the utility
partition that was backed up.
The system on which the redirected restore is
targeted must be the same make and model and have the same size
utility partitions as the system from which the utility partition
was backed up.
