Which "NEW" version of Ghost?
Seems to me Jay_Jay70 the non-corporate versions, 2003 and new 10 work great with Windows 2000 as you stated, but for 2003 and 2000 server it is not recommended.

Having said that, I have used 2003 with Server 2003. There are corporate versions of Ghost, and Acronis is another popular one that is less expensive for servers but still quite a bit more than the workstation versions.

true that but i was under the understanding that all versions of ghost had those restrictions

Has it ever been reccomended for server OS? i know it works but i dont know if it was ever supported as such

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

I just made the statement because the question was concerning server, not pro.
They do have a server version though, or at least they used to, I forget what it is called. Seems they have replaced it with their Live State Recovery software, which I am not at all familiar with.

Not recommending you count on it, but I think the main problem with the Ghost versions and server OS's is the drive configuration. Seems to work OK with a single drive but doesn't work with any raid configurations, at least that is my experience.
