Overview

This document contains release notes for EVault System Restore (ESR) version 7.50a. ESR is a solution for recovering a system after catastrophic failure.

ESR can restore systems from BMR backups created using the Windows Agent or the Image Plug-in.

Note: BMR backups created using Windows Agent or Image Plug-in version 7.50 cannot be restored using an ESR version earlier than 7.50.

Before you start using EVault System Restore, you need to create an ISO image using the Bootable Media Creator (BMC) utility. BMC allows you to create a new ISO image, or inject drivers into an existing image.

  • INSTALLATION NOTES

Before you start using EVault System Restore, you need to create an ISO image using the Bootable Media Creator (BMC) utility.

BMC allows you to create a new ISO image, or inject drivers into an existing image. To see instructions for using BMC to produce the bootable image, refer to the EVault System Restore User Guide.

Installation Requirements
      1. BMC Requirements


BMC requires version 4.0 of the Windows Preinstallation Environment (WinPE 4.0), which is a component of the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) for Windows 8.

The ADK must be installed before you can create an image using BMC.

General requirements for BMC:

  • A computer running one of the supported operating systems listed in section 1.2

  • CPU and RAM to meet the basic requirements of your operating system, as prescribed by Microsoft

  • 16-bit (or greater) video properties for optimal GUI display

  • A TCP/IP stack (for downloading the ADK, if it is not already installed on the computer)

  • At least 100 MB of free disk space for BMC installation

  • At least 1.5 GB of free disk space for a one-time download of ADK

  • At least 2 GB of free disk space for ADK installation

  • At least 300 MB of free disk space for creating an ISO file

The system drive requires free space to uncompress the packages (regardless of which drive the installation targets) for installation. The environment variables TEMP and TMP use %USERPROFILE% by default. Make sure that %USERPROFILE% points to a drive that has sufficient temporary space.
      1. ESR Requirements


EVault System Restore requires the following (minimum) hardware:

  • Intel Pentium processor

  • 700 MB of RAM

  • CD/DVD drive

  • 800 x 600 minimum screen resolution

  • Conditional Requirements

You might also need specific hardware for ESR:

  • Network interface card (required if you will use a network to restore from a vault)

  • USB port (required if you will restore from data that has been exported from a vault)

To restore your system or data, you must have already created a BMR-type backup with the Windows Agent or Image Plug-in.

Licensing

ESR does not require a license to restore. To back up to a vault, a valid license is required.

For more information, contact your service provider.

Installation Files

Bootable Media Creator is available in a self-extracting installation kit: BootableMediaCreator-7-50-2860a.exe

BMC produces a bootable image with the following file name: System-Restore-7.5.0.2857.iso

To see instructions for using BMC to create the bootable image, refer to the EVault System Restore User Guide.

FIXES AND KNOWN ISSUES
  1. Fixes

      1. Fix in Version 7.50a


ESR images are now based on the ADK for Windows 8.1, and include the latest drivers from Microsoft. These drivers are required for restoring Hyper-V generation 2 VMs and other devices. (29725)
      1. Fix in Version 7.50


ESR can now recover a system with the EFI system partition on a dynamic disk. (29046)

Known Issues

When mapping a volume from an Image backup using ESR, even if you drag and drop the volume to a larger size destination, you might get the following message: "Volume cannot be mapped. The destination is not of the same size." (26822)

WORKAROUND: Right-click the volume, delete the partition on the destination disk, and try again.

If you seed BMR backups using a Quick Ship Vault, direct-attached storage, or disk, after your data is successfully imported into the vault, run a backup to Vault. Failure to do so will result in you not being able to restore your system. (26829)

For Windows 2008 SP2, BIOS to BIOS restores do not succeed when the system volume is on an MBR disk, and the boot volume is on a GPT disk. The restore phase might succeed, but restarting fails. This is because Windows only supports GPT booting for 64-bit editions on UEFI-based systems. (25893)

Due to a Windows PE limitation, ESR restores cannot run for longer than 72 hours. The Windows PE overview site states, "To prevent its use as a production operating system, Windows PE automatically stops running the shell and restarts after 72 hours of continuous use." (25803)

If backup data is reformatted to an unsupported file system (e.g., FAT32), dragging and merging of an NTFS safeset to the reformatted volume appears to preserve the destination format (e.g., FAT32). Associated restores, however, will fail. (25631)

Partition B is not selectable for backup (Local System/Data Files). When an NTFS partition B is created in Windows Disk Management, it is not selectable when you create a BMR-type backup job. (20867)

Sometimes ESR does not retrieve the drive letter for a mapped volume if you drag and drop a large number of partitions (20 partitions, for example) to a GPT disk. The restore cannot proceed further. Cancel and try again, selecting fewer partitions. (20854)

ESR does not preserve Quota Settings (user hard-disk space settings) for NTFS partitions.

WORKAROUND: Use the Image Plug-in instead of ESR. The Image Plug-in preserves quota settings. (20669)
