BMR


Any suggestion on a magical BMR tool that will work on any AIX/Solaris/HPUX/Linux platforms ? Also support OS boot SAN w/mulitpathing .

If not, any suggestions on how to tackle each OS?

Thanks!

For GNU/Linux GUI, I'd suggest clonezilla, or specifically dd (on any UNIX). But I haven't tried the other ones.

Solaris has flash-archive. AIX has mksysb, Linux has dd, and HPUX has make_tape_recovery/make_disk_recovery. Linux has other options (as mentioned) like clonezilla, mondoarchive, and systemimager.

However, since you're mentioning commercial-grade *nix's, and SAN, presumably you have corporate money, and quite possibly an enterprise-scale backup solution. Things like Netbackup, Networker, and TSM all have bare-metal backup/recovery pieces available for them, and fit in well with your existing backup scenario.

Symantec NetBackup Bare Metal Restore supports machine disaster recovery onto same or different HW. Almost main operating systems are supported. (Windows, Linux (rhel, suse, oel), HPUX (ia, pa-risc), AIX, Solaris (x86, sparc) ).
Also OS boot over SAN and multipathing env ( like emc pp and linux native mp) are well supported. Even m/c having OS over local disks can be restored to boot over SAN Lun.

Thanks.

Yes...that's what I said previously.
