My company is trying to implement an effective offsite disaster recovery plan. I currently have Symantec System Recover 2013 R2 for use in backing up our existing servers. We have created virtual instances of all of our physical servers that are going to an offsite location for disaster recovery. What I would like to implement is having the incremental backups of our physical onsite servers performed each night and copied to the offsite location, and then those backups automatically restored to the virtual servers so the information on them remains as current as possible. I know how to schedule the backup tasks, but is there a way to schedule an automatic restore? Or perhaps commands that can be used with Windows Task Scheduler to implement this?
I apologize for not replying. We are using Symantec System Recovery 2013 R2 Server Edition. I'm still working on implementing this project however I'm using the scheduled P2V instead of trying to perform incremental restores. Right now the P2V process has not been successful for all servers yet.
