I am installing a server DL380 G5 that is going to be placed into the DMZ and I am working with some developers that are designing and testing in house applications.
Need to know is there a way to create snapshots of the server by creating restore points in the event that I have to roll back without having to rebuild the server from scratch.  Does anyone have any ideas or solutions

Thanks

I've never done this in Server 2003 myself but the following link explains how to do it:

Not useable for this machine anymore, but for things like this, especially on development servers, i suggest you to use Virtual Machines. You can easily save states and restore back to a set point with the guarantee everything is really rolled back. Another idea is to make Ghost images of the server.
I don't have a very good expirence with the build-in restore options of Windows Server.

You could also use Deep Freeze. It will allow you to do tests and restore your PC in a previous stage. It also uses snapshots.  Also most of the freeze programs would do the trick.
