We create regular nightly backups of our physical server to (rotating) external hard drives. Our physical server is a Windows Server 2016 running two Server 2016 VM instances: the domain controller and the production server.
I am performing a disaster recovery test for the scenario where the server breaks, replacement hardware is not (immediately) available and the VMs need to be restored to a client machine to resume operation until replacement hardware is available.
Is it possible to restore files from a backup created with Windows Server Backup (Server 2016) on a Windows client machine (e.g. Windows 10)?
(What I tried so far: I attached the external HDD to a Windows 10 PC, stared "Backup and Restore (Windows 7)" and selected "Select another backup to restore files from", but no backup device was found.)
