    Hi
    Just wondering if the following is possible with msp360?

    I have a VM running server 2019 and am thinking of restoring it to a decent hardware box
    Can MSP360 image his VM server and restore successfully to local hardware box?
    IF so

    Is there a good chance of it working ?

    What licenses do I need to accomplish that?

    many thanks

    Hi ,

    Could you please try the following scenario:
    1. Install a Backup application on that virtual machine
    2. Make an Image-based backup
    3. Create a bootable USB drive to run a restore of that virtual machine image to a local hardware box.
    For more information about creating a UBS drive and restoring to dissimilar hardware, please visit
    https://www.msp360.com/resources/blog/how-to-create-a-bootable-usb-for-windows-server/

    To test it out, you can use a trial Server license.

    Please feel free to create a support ticket in our support department if you require additional assistance.

    No keyboard functions are working at all? Have you tried TAB and ENTER? Is this a wired keyboard?

    tks-yes enter definitely doesnt work...not sure about tab...will try that again now shortly, caps lock toggles on and off and gives a screen notification...but stuck and cannot proceed...

    I would try unplugging the keyboard and plugging back in when on the BMR screen. Also, try using a wired mouse if you have one (assuming you're not already using one). If all else fails, I can reach out to Support (or you can open a Support Case yourself).

    Got it working guys, for some reason it didnt like the raid setup in the fujitsu server, its only raid 0 so I switched it off and ran the disk standalone..and the restore proceeded and worked...it must not have liked the raid card drivers or something...
