ok, so i am building a 2012 sbs essentials server to replace the old 2003 sbs server. wanted to clone both servers and having a prob. right away with acronis cloning the 2012 essentials. it finds the raid 1 drives and the other one i want to clone to and even starts to clone, then fails immediatly with no error message, just says clone aborted. Now i have used acronis for years cloning all types of server/work stations running scsi/raid/ide/sata/etc...not any ssd yet, so i don't know what the prob. could be other than how the ibm think server has the array config. it has one tiny partition and then a large one...but that has never been a prob. before when i had scsi raid 1 config with two partitions running on 2008 64 bit sbs...if acronis is not going to work, what dos type or linux type clone can i use w/o having to buy again.???
