How to replicate HP DL360 server to another server

I have HP DL360 with raid 1 setting (win 2008 insalled). I want to replicate this server the to another server (the same hardware) without stoppnig the current server. I know that i can take out one disk and move it to the second server. What is the best way to do it ?
Thanks,
Eyal

HP's split-mirror procedure was never intended to be used with the server running anyway; you would effectively be mirroring a crashed system if you just pulled one disk out, OS and controller cache contents wouldn't be written and the filesystem wouldn't be shut down properly.

Real time imaging software will take care of that (though an offline image works best). Think of Windows own system backup, or try more advanced software from Acronis.

I assumed with "disk mirror tech" he just meant "imaging" software, and not really the very extreme split mirror procedure.
