Restore VMs to test bed

Post by Tom84 »

Hi

I was looking to test Exchange/DC restores from backup to a test network (completely seperate from production network) and was wondering if there are any issues with doing so?

I.E Will it mark the .vkb once restored onto a test bed and do anything funny with the production guests on the next backup?

Thanks

Tom,

There is no way you can actually harm the backup .vbk as you are only restoring.. i do tests that like regular

Thank for the quick reply Trev.

I wasn't too concerned about damaging the .vbk itself, more any "gotchas" for the next time a backup occured in regards to the live production guest.
