I am looking for a recommendation for software that meets the following criterion:
Windows 2003 servers
VMWare ESX 3.5.x host
Cold cloning capability (boot from CD, NOT FROM USB KEY)
Commercial software (I cannot use a freeware/home brew/LiveCD(MOA) solution)
Clone to FILES, not directly to a virtual machine.
NICE TO HAVES:
Support to clone DIRECTLY to an external USB drive
Lack of client software. It would be nice to be able to clone directly to the external USB drive without having to fight with getting a client to send credentials to a server to simply write the image to disk. (This is the problem I'm facing with VizionCore's vConverter)
PRODUCTS I HAVE ALREADY TRIED or WILL NOT CONSIDER:
Thanks in advance for your recommendations and advice!
