Release overview 

x360Recover Bare Metal Restore is a feature release. The primary purpose of this release is to provide a simplified user experience when performing recoveries.

For complete details on using BMR, refer to the Bare Metal Restore Guide.

Summary of feature enhancements 

  • Added workflow to the BMR wizard to map network shares when performing recovery from local cache or virtual disk exports
  • Redesigned workflow when recovering from vault without local cache, to fully perform recovery from the BMR wizard
  • The Live CD OS has been updated to Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS with kernel 5.15.43

Summary of improvements

  • Map network shares with the BMR wizard

You've asked for improvements when recovering from local cache or virtual disk exports where data is located on a network share.  (Mapping network shares manually from a command-shell is tedious. )

The BMR wizard in now offers native support for 

  • local USB attached storage
  • Windows / CIFS network shares
  • Linux / NFS shares

Simply enter the required path and credentials and the wizard will map these network shares automatically during the recovery process.

  • Recovery from vault without local cache

Recovery from a vault without local cache has been simplified and the process is now similar to recovery from an appliance: 

  1. The BMR wizard prompts you to login to the vault
  2.  You select the protected system and snapshot
  3.  The selected snapshot is exported on the vault
  4. FTP credentials are collected automatically by the wizard and the vault is then mounted locally within the BMR environment. (You only need to enter the vault UI credentials at the start of the workflow.)
