I'm of the opinion that my only solution is to do a standard backup/restore using Symantec Backup Exec to a local LTO3 tape drive. However my worry is that the downtime window is going to exceed 12 hours.
I'm looking for opinions here on any possible faster ways of handling this task.
I don't know if imaging will really run any faster than an LTO especially if you're only way to image would be across the wire to a shared workstation drive big enough to handle the job or worse via USB
