Re: Ignite

Shlaom,

Ignite will only create bootable backups to approved tape drives.

You either get a SCSI card and cable and use a certified tape drive or you risk creating an image that won't work.

USB is not supported in this context.

Re: Ignite

Hi ,

If you don't have DAT drive, how do you recover?

Go for net recovery.
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

Hi Rana,

Please go for make_net_recovery.believe me its really very easy to handle and much faster as compare to tape.

Re: Ignite

setup an ignite server and create a recovery archive over the network. In case of an error, you can boot from the archive on your ignite server.
