Physical Machine

Physical machine

This section describes the recovery of physical machines by using the backup service web interface.

Use bootable media instead of the web interface if you need to recover:

  • OS X
  • Any operating system to bare metal or to an offline machine

Recovery of an operating system requires a reboot. You can choose whether to restart the machine automatically or assign it the Interaction required status. The recovered operating system goes online automatically.


To recover a physical machine

1. Select the backed-up machine.

2. Click
 Recovery.

3. Select a recovery point. Note that recovery points are filtered by location.
If the machine is offline, the recovery points are not displayed.
  • If the backup is located in the cloud storage, click Select machine, select a target machine that is online, and then select a recovery point.
  • Otherwise, recover the machine as described in "Recovering disks by using bootable media".

4. Click
 Recover machine.
The software automatically maps the disks from the backup to the target disks.
  • If the disk mapping fails, recover the machine as described in "Recovering disks by using bootable media". The media enables you to choose disks for recovery and to map the disks manually.
  • If the disk mapping succeeds, click Recover.

5. Confirm that you want to overwrite the disks with their backed-up versions. Choose whether to restart the machine automatically.

The recovery progress is shown in the
 Status column for the machine.
