imaging solution to use with Dell Poweredge 2950 and SAS RAID 5
Posted on 2011-04-18
We have to upgrade a client's old Dell 2950 Poweredge, first of all imaging the machine, then swapping out the current 6 SAS disk RAID array for higher capacity disks, then restoring the image to the new array.
I know from past experience that these machines and RAID arrays don't always play nice with imaging software (last time it was Ghost I think, can't remember if tried Acronis).
Does anyone have similar experience doing a similar thing with the same server, and can they recommend an imaging utility that is known to work?
