Wbadmin start systemstatebackup –backuptarget: F:
is the drive where you wish to store the system state backup.
The target volume for a system state backup cannot be a source volume by default. A source volume is any volume that has a file that is included in the backup. To change that behavior, you can add the AllowSSBToAnyVolume registry entry to the server. However, there are known issues with storing a system state backup on a source volume:
Backup time: 10/7/2008 3:33 PM
Backup target: Fixed Disk labeled D:
Version identifier: 10/07/2008-20:33
Can Recover: Application(s), System State
This backup job was completed on 10/7/2008 at 3:33pm and was saved to drive D:. The backup job has the ability to restore the
and is version identifier 10/07/2008-20:33
Once we have located the version identifier, we can initiate the restore by using the following command:
WBADMIN START SYSTEMSTATERECOVERY -version: <version id>
Where version id is the version identifier you obtained with the Get Versions command.
For our example the command would be:
WBADMIN START SYSTEMSTATERECOVERY -version: 10/07/2008-20:33
WBADMIN will restore the system state information back to the data from the backup. Once the restore process is complete, you will have to reboot the machine into normal mode to complete the restore.
