Norton Ghost 2003

by bcpgm In reply to Windows Server 2003

Norton Ghost 2003 (or Symantec Ghost will do the job.

Symantec officially does not support the ghosting of Windows Server. However, it may be used for backup but not deploying purpose.

Try ghost solution suite 2.0. It is for server 2003. It only costs $29 dollars for a full working copy from Symantec. I am going to try it out this week, when my new hard drive comes in.

Solution Suite

I do not believe Solution Suite is for cloning Windows 2003 Server. Windows 2003 Server is used to deploy the saved images.

Too many unknowns

by Kenone In reply to Windows Server 2003

What do you have? Is it just an IDE drive with the OS installed or is it scsi or are you working with raid? If it is just a single disk that you want to copy and not part of an array just plug it in as the master, make your new disk the slave, boot off of a ghost disk and do a disk to disk copy.
