system restore in 2003

Hi guys,

I'm pretty familiar with most of the earlier OS's but I'm new to windows server 2003. As a matter of course I always take a system restore point before installing any new software on XP - I've found this invaluable in the past if something gets messed up.

I've got to install some new software (gotomypc) on a win2003 server tomorrow - and I wondered if there is an equivalent restore feature built in or if not some kind of workaround in case it causes any problems.

Many thanks in advance...

system restore is one of the worst technolgies implemented in an OS, it is an absolute harbor for malware and viruses. Thankfully it wasnt placed in the server build and never should be!

if you want a similar sort of protection then you should purchase Acronis True Image and take a snapshot of your server before you make a change. Its a great piece of software

well that told me!

I'm looking for something less drastic than that (just system files and registry) - what about the system state backup part of the windows backup utility?

Yes, system state backup is very reliable.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
