    As I worked today on recreating a Dell Utility Partition, I encountered this factoid:  Diskpart, when run inside Windows, does not see volumes on OEM partitions. If you run diskpart under windows and ask for details on the Dell Utility Partition, you will get this message:  “There is no volume associated with this partition”: So […]

    So you’ve used Windows Server 2008 bare metal restore and it wiped out your Dell Utility Partition. What to do? Background:  I’m setting up a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine as a Hyper-V host on a Dell PowerEdge 2900. I originally configured two RAID arrays (0 and 5). Starting with the Dell Systems Build and […]

    Recently I upgraded a small server to run Windows Server 2008 R2 as a Hyper-V host, with Server 2008 R2 as a guest as well. I’ve read that Windows Server Backup can restore to dissimilar hardware. That could be especially helpful in a small environment where no other servers are available. Can I restore the […]

    In January 2011, I wrote about my experience restoring a Hyper-V Server to an Optiplex 960. That article is exhaustive (and exhausting). I’ve done the same test again and wanted to write up a somewhat shorter procedure. If you get stuck in this procedure, refer to the original article for details. Environment and Backups I’m […]

    This is the third in the series of almost annual articles about my experiences testing a Hyper-V restore. I’ve done this successfully in 2011 and 2012. Why repeat? To make sure disaster recovery is still possible, and to try a new approach. To recap, I have a Hyper-V server (Dell PowerEdge 1900) running one Hyper-V […]

    There are several differences since the last time I did a disaster recovery restore test. The server is now a Lenovo ThinkServer TS140 running Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials on “bare metal,” i.e. no Hyper-V is involved. The target machine is a ThinkCentre M93p. Server 2012 backups are done using the standard Windows Backup program […]

    Time for my annual test of restoring a server to a desktop. This year is almost identical to last year, but I want to have one list of steps, so I’ll repeat much of that text. I’m restoring Server 2012 R2 Essentials (installed on a Lenovo TS140 with legacy BIOS) to a Lenovo M93p desktop. […]

    Once a year, I test restoring a server to a desktop. The server is backed up with standard Windows Backup. The idea is to confirm that if the server went down, I could quickly restore to one of the customer’s desktops as a temporary solution while the server is repaired or replaced. This is also […]
