I am currently using veritas backup exec sbs to backup windows 2000 sbs and windows 2003 sbs on several sites.
If a server crashes what is the best way to restore it fully. Recently a server crashed and I had to rebuild the server and restore the data the problem was I also had to dis-join all the pc's from the domain and re-join them again as the sid was different. I have looked into veritas disaster recovery but most of the time the image doesnt' fit on a cd making it difficult to restore as well as having to ensure the dr file is going through ok each day also a server with the same hardware is not always avaliable
Is there a simple method for backing up/restoring full system image. Symantec live state utility seems good but I would have to run it along side veritas so this would not work cost wise for a small business environment
