Hot Clone Windows Servers without restarting the clone source server
Posted on 2010-11-23
The scenario is I have a win2k server that I cannot restart, and I need to hot clone it and restore it on a new physical server. (Same Specs)
The trick is, I cannot restart the server after installing a cloning tool. This means whichever solution you recommend must not require a restart.
I know p2v converters basically do this. Except my requirement is P2P.
Ideally this solution would only push an agent for the job, and once the clone is complete it would remove itself from the source.
