Hello EE,

I'm trying to create a disaster recovery plan. I've got everything copied and ready to go (if i need) except for copies of the actual SBS 2003 CDs.

All i would like to do is create replica cds of the install cds, in order to recovery my server onto another server, if for example a my server was destroyed as well as the orginal CDs.

Is there going to be issues creating bootable cds or even copyright protection?

Many thanks.

No problem - just use a CD copy program - Nero works just fine.

- providing these are for genuine backup purposes there are no issues with copyright and the CD themselves are not copy protected in any way.

Make sure you keep a copy of our product ID safe as well.
