Server 2K3 Backups
Posted on 2006-05-30
Simple question, whats the best method of backing up Server 2K3?
I've previously used Powerquest Drive Image, although I have been unable to backup the server in a live environment, I found the best way to boot from a seperate disk running windows XP and to make an image of the drive running 2k3 from there, restores have worked fine using that method. Trouble is its a real pain to shutdown, boot again, run the backup then reboot again so is there an on-the-fly solution. I do like the idea of a bootable CD and running a restore on one drive from an image stored on another.
