backing up server info
Posted on 2011-10-14
I have done a complete backup of my Windows SBS 2003 using NOVASTOR. I was wondering if there is anyway to individually backup data like active directory, scripts, system state, or any other crucial server data in the event of a crash? I would then use these backups to setup a new server. Also. NTbackup does not work on this machine anymore. I used to use it to backup the system state. It gives errors everytime that it cannot complete the backup. Here is the error:
Active backup destination: File
Media name: "system state 10-13-11.bkf created 10/14/2011 at 10:42 AM"
Volume shadow copy creation: Attempt 1.
Error returned while creating the volume shadow copy:0x8004231f.
Error returned while creating the volume shadow copy:8004231f
The operation did not successfully complete.
Is there another way to backup system state? Maybe a software that would do it?
