    Why would you want to do this? Strategic, well tested and well planned deployments are the way forward. How big are the images you wish to deploy?

    well I have 2 isa server (main + backup) but cant array them as its only standard edition. if i keep one on standby it'll be progressively more out of date. so i thought if the main one could image itself overnight, I'd never had to worry about having an out of date backup

    Could you use something like driveimage xml to do this?

    Surely a better and infinately more practical solution would be to simply export te ISA config and save it onto the backup server?
