Server 2003 backup solutions

Dear expert!

I have several questions regarding backup Server 2003 Standard Edition.

How to make complete (full) backup, including system files and active directory files in 2003 Server Enterpise Edition with RAID5 configuration?
Backup utility which is integrated in Windows 2003, is it enough good for making backups? What kind of backup this utility do?
Is it possible to make total (full) backup with Noron Ghost 2003 software or Acronis backup software?

Thanks in advance for your help and answers!

Best regards, Robert Tratar

Why do you need a "powerful" solution?  NTBackup is perfectly fine.  Sure, if I have $1000 burning a hole in my poclet, I'd look into ArcServe or BackupExec... or even Acronis... but if not, NTBackup is a fine solution.

I with all you fellahs.  I back up my 100 or so Windows servers by doing a base baremetal backup with an inexpensive imaging solution like ghost and the ubcd4win like my earlier post, then I use NTBackup that is included with Server 2003 to do my incrementals.  This has never failed me in the dozen or so server restores I've had to do for my Windows Servers.

Good Luck Again!
