Does anyone know if Norton 12.0 works with IBM x346 Windows 2003 servers with Raid 5?   or IBM Infinity 4500R Raid 1?  Are there any new methods for creating a ghost image of Raid IBM servers?  Or a good utility to do so with?   Thank you.

Acronis cost a bit high.  Does anyone has other options ghoisting or imaging IBM x346 Windows 2003 or Netfinity Window 2000 servers, with Raid 5 or Raid 1?    or any other methods for creating images for Raid servers?   Thank you

commonly, you need to load the appropriate DOS ASPI driver to make
your hardware level RAID Ghosted.

FYI - Ghost compatibility with RAID

if you only need to backup Windows OS, not to clone the whole disk (which supports backing up any OS), you may consider MS Windows Imaging.

Windows Imaging Format
