Hi my dear friends!

We are about to install Symantec LiveState on a Windows Server 2003. Is this simply a matter of inserting the cd and installing it or is it adivsable to dig through the documentation supplied by the software?

If you need more info please do ask, I'm fairly new at this and more than willing to learn! I already read some of the supplied documentation but it is quite huge and overwhelming and hardly a reference as long as I'm not really installing the software. This is a new server so that is why I'd like to gather some info from people with some experience rather than inserting the cd and installing it.

Any people with experience in this please respond and ask for more info if you need. Things I should consider prior to installing for example. I'm aware of the fact that Symantec supplies all kinds of info to guide me through the setup but I really prefer some info from people who have experience with installing this software. I'm fairly new at this so please provide as much info as you can in the form of a walkthrough the setup process.

Hope my message comes through,

Best regards,

Paul :)

Hi PeterdeB,

I am not aware of "symantec livestate" but I would highly recommend you to go through the documentation first.

Cheers!

If you have purchased this software then you should be able to call Symantec direct and pick their support line techies brains.
The idea behind livestate which you may or may not know is that it is CLAIMED that you are meant to be able copy/clone a servers hardware settings and software & OS config ETC and then use that to restore another completely differant server with a completely differant hardware setup if need be.
As Veritas now Symantecs IDR is Hardware reliant so when you clone one server it can only be used to restore that server or another server of the exact same manufacturer with the exact same hardware etc which is quite restrictive for some companies where as Livestate gives you a lot more flexibility.

You can as we did install Livestate on say an independent server and use the deploy agent option from this backup server to the servers you wish you clone/backup and then backup to disk on your backup server, it has a nice simplistic GUI interface which is very intuitive.
