backup plan for 2003 server with 2005 server.
Posted on 2006-04-02
I’m running a WINDOWS 2003 server, SQL 2005 server with SATA HDD RAID 1. The HDD capacity is 180GB, now I need another backup plan in case of fire or stolen. I bought 2 external USB HDD, 200 GB, I was planning to do full rotation backup by GHOST 2003.
Now my long questions are:
1. Is it possible to do full backup to USB external hard disk using GHOST 2003?
2. Does it matter for GHOST 2003 if the USB HDD’s capacity is different with SATA HDD?
3. If I want to recover everything from USB HDD, how could I recover everything to a new SERVER with SATA RAID 1. For example, a blank new server. What ‘are the right steps?
4. Is it possible to boot a USB HDD from a SERVER with SATA HDD RAID 1?
Thanks a lot!
