I have a primary DC, secondary DCs, few Terminal servers, few other servers running general applications. I want to start backing up important files/system state from the servers so that in case of hardware failure, i should be able to restore the same functionality on new server. All the machines are win 2003 servers. Any information on how to back up mssql and mysql will be appreciated. I am planning on developing a back up plan for the servers. so any important information on backing up server is welcome.
