Norton Ghost Image

Need to make a copy of a Windows Server 2003 that is  on its way to its death bed. I would like to copy the server contents/settings etc and restore them to another server. Can this be accomplished via Norton Ghost and if so, how?

Thanks

So long as the disks are still readable and that the hardware you are going to GHOST onto is EXACTLY the same, except disk sizes maybe, YES.

If your going to a newer hardware platform then no.

What is your scenario please?

So far, the hardware is the same so I guess it should not be an issue.

IF it were different hardware, it would not work?

If it was different hardware then when you restored the image and rebooted, windows 2003 would have a fit trying to boot on something it never knew about!

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Anyway of copying settings and files over without image?

By the way, thanks for the help

basically, our current server is on its way out- too many hardware problems. Just want to be able to transfer it "as is" with minimal hassle. I have another server that is identical to this one regarding hardware, and another that is in top shape but different hardware

Is this a stand alone server? An active directory domain controller? An AD Member server?

How would I copy/restore the contents from this server to a new one with different hardware?
