ePO 5.1 Disaster Recovery

I need to demonstrate the ePO 5.1 VSE disaster recovery on Windows . ePO is installed using the default MS SQL Express.

I have taken the ePO snapshot and them taken the SQL backup.

Now on the target system, how should I proceed? Do I need to install the SQL Express manually and then restore the database using the same database name?

Re: ePO 5.1 Disaster Recovery

You can either use the previous machine as SQL server for target ePO server or install sql on target machine, restore the DB, run ePO setup executable and check the box 'Restore ePO from an existing database Snapshot'.

This needs 'Keystore encryption passphrase' password you set on the source ePO server.

I am getting the above error during the ePO install. I am following the below steps.

1. Restore the DB (was taken after snapshots)

2. Install ePO, select the option " Restore ePO from an existing database Snapshot "
