This document describes how to install and remove an IDR and what the information about the IDR looks like. All methods automatically create a backup boot environment to switch back to in case of problems with the IDR.

NOTE: If the IDR to be installed conflicts with an existing IDR currently installed, please contact support for further assistance.  A combined IDR will need to be created.
