Do you mean backup Users, rights, user folders, etc. from the server?

Symantec backup Exec 2010 R3 is your best bet.  Not only can you backup everything on your server but also worstations on the network.

Fbackup
Exact copies of files.
If you don't want to have the files stored in one zip file, FBackup can make exact copies of the backup sources using "mirror backup". Since FBackup will also back up empty folders, you can use this backup type to create in the destination a "mirror" copy of the original files. So it's not only a file backup software.

Backup open files.
If a file is in use by another program at the time of the backup, FBackup will still be able to back up that file, because it uses the Volume Shadow Service that Windows provides. So, as long as you're using Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 2003 Server, Windows 2008 Server or Windows 7, FBackup will back up those open files. As an example, you will be able to back up your Outlook emails and settings without closing the program first.

FBackup is a free data backup software, it is not recommended for full system backup (disk image backups) matching with your needs.

program can be configured to start the backup automatically using command
line options. The files or complete directories will be stored in ZIP
archives using a fast and secure compression procedure.
