Full image backup of LAN workstations to Server share
Posted on 2009-05-20
Hi, I'd like to implement a full backup strategy of all the workstations on the LAN for a company I support.
I don't want to backup anything on their own machine. I'd rather move everything onto the server.
But instead of just file backups where when disaster, doing a recovery is getting the OS up and running, I'm looking at bare bones recovery methods.
So the idea is to do a full image backup with incrementals on a day to day basis, then save it onto the server.
When restore to say another machine, all we need to do is put a CD in, boot it, find the latest for the particular workstation and then press restore and wait.
What sort of configuration would work?
