Server 2003 state backup
Posted on 2006-04-11
What's wrong with my recoverey plan?
I have one SBS 2003 and four server 2003 servers. All data is backed up to my linux backup servers. All my Linux servers have tape drives which are also used. I also keep all my server patches up to date weekly.
I do state backups of all my 2003 servers including my SBS 2003 server and Exchange 2003 to a server next door to using nightly. I also keep a log of every server which includes software installs and setups. If I ever need to recover any one of my server 2003 including my data I will do the following:
1. Reinstall server 2003,
2. Patch it
3. Do a restore to use my state backup.
4. Then will copy all the data back on
5. Install and configure any softwares.
Any suggestions would be appricated.
