Relax-and-Recover is an Open Source disaster recovery solution that produces a bootable image. Upon booting the image can re-partition the system and initiates a restore from the backup. Restores to different
hardware are possible and can be used as a migration tool as well.
Currently Relax-and-Recover supports various boot media (ISO, PXE, OBDR tape, USB or eSATA storage), a variety of network protocols (SFTP, FTP, HTTP, NFS, CIFS) for storage and backup.
This document is a step-by-step process to setup this migration utility and recover a server using NFS.
