Windows Server 2003 backup questions
Posted on 2005-04-19
I have a series of questions running through my head about Windows Server 2003 backup...
1. It sounds like the backup utility is fine for plain files and people opt for a 3rd-party tool to backup live files (e.g., Exchange, databases, etc.
2. Does anyone use disk image software to make an exact copy of Windows server 2003 (e.g., Acronis, CA, Double Image)? Do I really need the server version of these products (~$500) or can I get by with the desktop versions (~$50)?
3. Is it possible to make the backup utility save the files to a network-attached storage device?
4. Is it possible to make the backup utility save files to a few XP workstations for extra protection?
