Software recommendations to copy/replicate a server set up on another box.

Would like product recommendations to copy an existing server and load that copy onto another box here at work. If have to purchase a product would not like a conflict with licensing and such. Would like to take the copying software to various IT contracting jobs.

If you are contracting this out, why not just use Robocopy?  It comes on your server and a decent contractor will know how to use it. Free.

What do you want to copy? Data, server state, a clone of the server?

Clone the server.
You can use Acronis for that.

Two cautions:
1. Make sure the server you are cloning does not have an OEM server license.
2. Make sure you are not cloning old problems better fixed by reinstalling. Very common.
