OBDR Issue


Hi Guys,
First of all, I would like to say: HAPPY EASTER..:-)

And Now,
Is there any real case or documents confirm that both DL760 G2 and DL740 Servers support the OBDR Feature with DAT Drives?

Re: OBDR Issue


I can agree with all the above, Andrzei...But in the below link:
http://www.hp.com/products1/storage/compatibility/tapebackup/ISS/index.html

You can see that the DL760G2 and DL740 Servers doesnt have the mark of having "HP-certified One-Button Disaster Recovery solution"...WHat do u think about that?!!

Re: OBDR Issue

I think, you have to try.
I think it is only "ideological" that dl740/760 isn't on compatibility matrix - big server must be via EBS protected...

Re: OBDR Issue

Well! the OBDR feature on DL740 server was tested.
It was done through Yosemite Tapeware V7 on the server.
BUT
The server doesnâ t support booting from tape Device!!

So bootable CD was created by using disaster recovery wizard, and after booting the server by using the bootable CD it get unknown characters and then stop working!!

What do u think?!!
