Description

You can deploy Veritas System Recovery 16 or Veritas System Recovery 16 Linux Edition software delivery packages to computers. You can also choose to install Veritas System Recovery with a user interface. The user interface lets users interact with the software from the desktop of the client computer.

For complete system requirements, see the Veritas System Recovery 16 User's Guide (includes LightsOut Restore), or the Veritas System Recovery 16 User's Guide Linux Edition.

Note:

Veritas System Recovery 16 Management Solution does not support recovery of Linux-based computers. You must recover Linux-based computers on the local computer. For more information about using Veritas System Recovery Linux Edition locally on a computer, see the Veritas System Recovery 16 User's Guide Linux Edition.

Note:

Following the installation of Veritas System Recovery 16 for Windows, the client computer is automatically restarted. The restart is necessary to ensure that the necessary Veritas System Recovery services are started and running. A restart is not necessary following the installation of Veritas System Recovery 16 Linux Edition.

To review the installation's log file, check the C:\Windows\Temp folder.
