using trial symantec backup exec

Hello All,

I want to take an image of one of the local win 2003 server and store it on the external disk or on DVD for the recovery purpose.

I think most of the apps are on C and D drive, can I store this image on the external drive or does it has to be on CDs?

Thanks in advance.

Regards
Charlie

NO.
You can boot the server with the SRD and then run a COLD Backup of the volumes.You will not need to install the BESR application
Please address other questions seprately.
