GSS 2.5.1: How do i make a ghost image of windows 2003 server

Hi,
1) I bought Ghost Solution Suite 2.5.1 & installed it on my server, which is Windows SBS 2003 R2.
2) I bought this software only to be able to create an image to the server.
3) I have no idea how to do that. How do i make a ghost image of windows 2003 server?

Thanks

As you have SBS, this one is better suited to your needs and is also cheaper:

Symantec Ghost Solution Suite is a product to centrally manage the Ghosting of workstations and laptops.

Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery Server is a product that allows you to create an image of your server.

Looks like you bought the wrong product I am afraid.

Thank you very much for the answers, i understand it now.

Another question, let say, i am using GSS to create image of a laptop.
the image is saved on the server.
is it possible to copy the image to disk-on-key, and restore it manually on the laptop (off-site)?

You can copy the image to various devices.  I have never tried a disk-on-key but have used CD's happily.

I created a Ghost Boot disk (floppy), which I used to boot the laptop from and then inserted the CD into the CD-ROM drive and suck the image from that onto the laptop, overwriting what was on the laptop.

Without the server pushing the image this was the only way I know to do it.

Yes you can use a flash drive for both the Ghost boot and the image storage, or simply burn to DVD's. These are all options when you create the ghost Boot CD and use the ghost.exe in DOS mode.

For your server, you need to create the DOS bootable or Win PE bootable CD, and use a shared drive or external drive to store the server image.

I hope this helps !
