Back UP How to set it up.

Hello,

I just recently took over a network with 30 workstations. I domain controller and 1 file/exchange server. We
are backing up to tapes.  I am planning buying a NAS for real time backup, Gettting Symantec Symantec Livestate Recovery,.  The question I have is how to set it up. If I make an image of the HD do I have to stop the services before I do. Does doing real time back up affect the databses, exchange, or other files. Can I do a real time back up?  Do I need to do anything special?  I just need some guidance on how to set up the back up.  I am still using tapes, but to keep off site.  

Thanks

Symantec Backup Exec is the best backup software for Exchange.
However, you can also use NTBACKUP which comes with windows and Windows DPM.
