Norton Ghost Backup

I have a Windows 2003 Server and an Iomega Rev Drive.  I would like to make a ghost image of my server onto one of my Rev Disks.  

Whats the easiest way of doing this.  

Is is possible without bring down the server?

Normally under the backup option you would just select what you want to backup and where to, via a dvd, cdrom, or other type.  On my version of norton ghost it prepares itself and then it will reboot and create the image via a DOS based screen then reboot when it's done.  It usually only takes me about 30 minutes to create a 3.5 gig image onto a DVD.

As far as bringing down the server i'm not sure on that at the moment.

You can use Symantec's new Backup Exec... creates a full system image wherever you want, splits it up and does it while the system is running.

PLUS.  it will do incrementals of the changes, so you can drop in one or two REV disks for the next backup instead of the amount for the full backup.

I would recommend Acronis TrueImage Server, the best imaging software available
