Right, im wantin to image our 2003 servers incase the c drve happens to fail on one. Does anyone know of any software that will do this. I keep askin around but people cant seem to grasp what i want, i dont want to image a client on XP im wanting to image a 2003 server and save the image in a secure location.
Any ideas let me know thanks
my suppliers keep banging on about the symantec ghost solutions suite. Now in the symantec spec it states it will only do upto XP not 2003... is this true??
Acronis TrueImage server is good but has gone up in price costs about ¬£375 per server now 8O
Had to do this myself a couple of weeks back. Basically, had to replace all the drives on a Dell Poweredge 2500 server running W3k - had to fit larger drives.
I plugged in an Adaptec IDE RAID Card (1220a?) with 2 stripped 40 gb drives (just to give enough storage space) and then used Norton Ghost 2002 to Ghost the C drive to an image file on the IDE drives.
I then replaced the 3 drives forming the C drive, rebuilt and scrubed the array, then ghosted the drive back from the image on the IDE drives.
Had to do the same for the D drive as well. All worked perfectly!
I did have several 'normal' backups on standby in case but thankfully didn't need them.
In short, get hold of Norton Ghost 2002. I have got Norton Ghost 10 as well but find it a right pain - 2002 is soo much easier to use.
