How to backup the entire DX4000 operating system and restore the backup of the system in another DX4000?
I know that WSB does not support backups greater than 2TB, but after I can manually copy the data of the D drive, the capacity of its occupies is much lower than 2TB.
I have tried to use WSB to back up the DX4000 C drive, and it is prompted to find the available backup when the DX4000 recovers iOS to recover from the backup recovery.
(Specific operation: Select recovery method-from backup restore server-server recovery cannot retrieve the backup list from the backup disk. Error code: 0x80780001)
Is there any good way to back up the operating system of the server and restore the bare metal to another DX4000 server. Because I want to ensure that the software installed in the previous server operating system and the computer in the computer list in the dashboard can continue to be connected to the server. (I have multiple DX4000 servers)
Because, as far as I know, if you use a completely reinstalled system of another DX4000 server, the previous computer will need to uninstall and reinstall the connector software. In this way, the early backup will be lost and everything will be restarted.
I want to know that in addition to backup the operating system of the server, what other methods can be used to reinstall the server system and can continue to use the previous client’s backup and the client does not need to reinstall the connector software. Configuration.
In addition, there is another question:
Since the original server uses 3TBX2 and RAID1 configuration, after extending a larger hard disk, it can only get 3TBX4, RAID5 configuration (12-3TB) instead of the 4TBX4 (16-4TB) of the large hard disk itself. Except for re -creation of the storage pool, is there any other way to expand it without damage operation under the Windows desktop?
(I remember that someone mentioned that I could install the Intel RST drive for a desktop -based RAID management, but I haven’t tried it.)
If you can get help, you will be grateful!
