I am thinking how to restore my physical windows 2003 machine if it brokes.
As I know the standard process of restore is:
1. found a machine with similar hardware
2. install windows 2003
3. install backup agent
5. restore files.
And the whole process takes really long time, and meanwhile service is down.
I was wondering if there is any other way(fast and easiest) to do this , any backup software that can protect machine in some other way that this standard way. Maybe something like image level backup or CDP to different machine with dissimilar hardware or any other ....
I am using IBM TSM software to backup machine now, but if there is something better i can switch to it.
It will be very helpful for me if you recommend me something.
Thanks in advance to all.
