Bare Metal Restore Question

Dear All,

If we perform an image-based BMR (Bare Metal Restore) of a Windows Server 2003 physical box, will Windows or Netbackup prompt the Windows license key upon restore?

Or should the image already have the Windows license key already embedded within?

Thank you all.

You will not need to provide any Key during the restore as Netbackup will restore the OS + Data from the full backup that you took and which already includes whatever keys were present at time of backup.
