I have a server we use to backup our networks servers, mostly VMs. Backups work pretty well however, I do not have any way of restoring our physical backup server should it crash. What is the simplest way to take a full backup of our backup server from time to time so I will not have to reconfigure everything should there ever be a crash? Maybe a basic windows backup?

What OS is your Backup Server?

If you are just wanting to recover your entire backup server to the same bare metal server to a point in time, I would recommend Windows Server Backup.

This is what can be acheived using Windows Backup for FREE
