Imaging Software

Hi

Just a quick one, I admin three servers for one of my customers, all three servers are running Server 2003, one is a domain Controller, one a mail server, running exchange 2003, and the other is a backup domain controller, In the next week or so I am going to install a new mail server, running Server 2003 and exchange 2007, the two mail servers are going to run together with half the mailboxes on each. But before I start running Domain Prep, and Forest Prep, and playing around with active directory, I would like to image all three servers just in case anything goes wrong...  can anyone recommend good imaging software so I could recover in hours if it goes wrong...

Regards

Darren

are these servers being set-up with applied RAID? e.g. RAID 1 or RAID 1+0?
 if so,

you can simply pull-out and keep any one of the disk and replace with your spare (make sure it's the same specs). this could be your easiest and fastest way of backing-up your servers.
