Ghosting a Compaq ML300 Server

I am trying to ghost a server which is using the standard SCSI controller. However when using ghost 7.0 it always seems to want to create a 17Gig image file. I only have about a gig of data on the drive. I have tried many ghost command line options without success. It appears as if it is doing a raw sector by sector dump. How can I get ghost to do a proper image?

Is your filesystem NTFS? I am using Ghost 6.5 and I essentially get the same issue,although my boot partition is set to 4Gb,You can select high compression and start the dump to your ghost server,or you can attach a tape drive and ghost to it so you don't run out of space. Symantec has instructions on doing the tape drive clone.

Hope this helps,

Found the answer from symantec tid called "ghost compatibility with Raid" basically I had to break the mirror and run ghost with the ntiid switch, worked a treat !!
