Question UBDR Gold 6.0 and Windows 2008 R2?

I have not had a chance to test UBDR Gold 6.0 restore of an image of a Windows 2008 R2 server.

My questions is does it, UBDR Gold 6.0, handle the image backup and restore of a Windows 2008 R2 system with the approximately 100MB hidden (just in case you use bitlocker) partition? I tried with UBDR Gold 5 and the restored system always blue screened. Maybe I didn't have all of the proper options set, I don't know.

Thanks as always to the excellent support provided by UltraBac,
JD

yes we do support the backup and restore of the 100mb utility.

When you did the restore, did you create the 100mb partition or did was it created by doing the mbr restore?

Also was this backup done via UltraBac, or did you take the backup with ubdr?

Sorry for the delay in responding, it's been kinda busy.

Good to hear about the support.

I don't remember exactly what I did, but I would normally try all available options. And it was with UBDR Gold 5.0, cold image.

Thanks,
JD

Gold 5 Will have issues taking cold images of 2008 / windows 7

In Gold 6 they have fixed this :)

Derek,

So sorry it's taken this long to reply. I still haven't had a chance to test this and part of that is your assurance that it's been fixed in UBDR Gold 6. We're gearing up for a DR test, which relies heavely on UBDR and UltraBc File-by-File backups, also Exchange and SQL Server. You may hear from me in the next couple of weeks, as we have 2008 R2 servers with and without that @!$%* 100 MB partition. I'll update this thread soon with the results (me with eyes, ears, fingers, toes, and anything else that can be crossed, crossed).

As an aside for anyone creating Win2K8 R2, if you use UBDR Gold and choose the advanced options to create the "system" partition in advance, MS will NOT create the hidden 100 MB partition.

As always, thanks for the great support,
JDG

JDG,
We have done some testing, and we do not, as of yet, support dissimilar restore of a machine with bitlocker enabled.
