Hi,
I have a following scenario wondering if some one can suggest/ help.

ProLiant ML350 Server
Windows Server 2003 R2 (application server - part of domain - NOT DC), with MS SQL server 2000 installed.
Symantec Backup Exec for windows server 10d with agent for MS SQL server 2000 installed on it.
We are experiencing short of disk space on C:/ (system partition) and planning to re install/ restore OS (Windows 2003 Server) and data form tape to existing RAID 5 whilst reconfiguring it to larger partition size for "C:/(system partition) " on server.
What would be the best way to approach and resolve the issue?

An early response will highly be appreciated
many thanks

Do you have a spare server you can build the RAID array and OS in which is of the same model as the exisiting one?

That way you can prep it up, and when out of hours restore to this server.  Then swap the disk's over in the live server.

If you haven't got that then I would look at putting the new disks in the server, create the array to your requirements, install the os, the backup agent and then do the system restore in line with Backup Exec.

Keep you existing disks for a backout option :)
