Let's say we have a system that is backed up regularly and it vanishes in a puff of smoke one day. One can get FreeBSD installed on a new drive in maybe half an hour or so but we also need to get back to the right patch level and then we can say we are back where we started. If you do not have hot-swappable drives which we mostly do not, What is the best way to restore the full system?
Can I use the FreeBSD installation disk in rescue mode? The idea would be to boot the CDROM, go in to rescue mode, mount the new drive which may be blank right now, and then use restore based on the last dump of the system we are trying to revive. Thanks.
