Symantec NetBackup 7.6 Bare Metal Restore: Administration (NBBMRA)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline
 

Course Content

Bare Metal Restore (BMR) is a license free feature of Symantec NetBackup that enables the automated recovery of Windows and UNIX servers in a variety of disaster recovery scenarios ranging from the loss of a single boot disk to the loss of a data center. The Symantec NetBackup 7.6 Bare Metal Restore: Administration course covers the implementation of BMR within the NetBackup environment and the general principles of using BMR to develop a disaster recovery strategy. Hands-on labs provide the IT professional with experience in the functionality of the Symantec Bare Metal Restore 7.6 software both on the Windows and on Linux platforms.

Who should attend

This course is for system administrators and technical support staff who are tasked with designing and implementing a disaster recovery strategy using BMR, and testing and performing the disaster recovery plan.

Prerequisites

It is assumed that students have a working knowledge of NetBackup. Students must be able to create NetBackup policies, run manual backups and navigate the NetBackup admin console. Although students can select either Windows or Linux as their primary platform for the lab exercises, some familiarity of the other OS would be helpful.

Course Objectives

  • Identify the role BMR plays in the NetBackup environment
  • Describe the key components that compose the BMR architecture
  • Define common terms that relate to the BMR product
  • List the steps that are performed during a BMR client restore operation
  • Identify the general steps to prepare for deployment of BMR systems
  • Setup the BMR master and boot servers on Windows and Linux
  • Configure a NetBackup policy to collect BMR information
  • Describe the function of a Shared Resource Tree (SRT)
  • Create, manage and modify network-based and mediabased SRTs for Windows and Linux clients
  • Describe the options for booting a failed client
  • Configure the BMR PXE and BMR MFTP services on a Windows boot server
  • Describe the recovery process of a Windows/Linux client initiated by both a network and media boot
  • Identify the BMR processes that run on the master server, boot server and client
  • View, configure and manage BMR logs
  • Perform client restores using external procedures
  • Perform a point in time restore
  • Restore a Windows client to hardware different than the original hardware
  • Restore a Windows/Linux client to a different disk configuration
  • Configure Auto Image Replication and recover a client at a remote site
