Question: Does Windows Server 2008 have System Restore Points.

I’m sorry to say that no, it does not. Take a look at the second Note at the bottom of this article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/926185

It would be nice for those using Server 2008 as a workstation OS, but it looks like we will have to rely on Volume Shadow Copy Service and good old backups.

Update to this article - May 8, 2009

For those of you running your environments in Hyper-V and want some sort of system restore, take a look at Hyper-V snapshots. Just remember to keep your data elsewhere and to thoroughly test using snapshots before using them in a production environment.

dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:WindowsServerBackup
dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:WindowsServerBackupCommandlet

followed by a reboot will get you back the good old system restore point tab.
