Bare Metal Restore


Recommended Posts

Has anyone run a BMR to a client using the Client Restore Folder and not going back through the Server Dashboard?  I can run one form the Dashboard back to a drive in a docking station but for some reason the Executable fails when I run it from the client.  The server password always comes back as incorrect (and yes I do know the password).


I'm looking to put an SSD in in my Laptop and this always works without a hitch in 2011 and this is the first BMR I've tried on 2012 Essentials R2.  All help is appreciated.


In case you're wondering what executable I'm talking about, if you go to Program Files>Windows Server>Bin>Client Restore; you should be able to copy that folder over to a client and run it from there.  The client in question is NOT a Domain member and the wizard fails at the password.
