Imaging HP ProLiant DL140 G2

Morning All,

I need to image an HP ProLiant DL140 G2 for our client in Africa. This is an obvious solution for a lack of bandwidth, expertise etc.
I have consider using Ghost, but would like to know what the best solution will be.
With Ghost I'll be able to create a boot CD, and then write the image to a DVD, making life a lot easier for us, and the user on site, should they have a catastrophic failure of their server. It's also the application I know best in doing this!

Thanks,

Craig

Hello, not sure if anyone else has answered with suggestions yet.

We used to use Powerquest Drive Image and have played with Ghost which I know are the "main" solutions. But both carry a price and have their own peculiarities.

I would also suggest that you take a look at a product called "Drive Snapshot" (http://www.drivesnapshot.de/en/) - don't be put off by the site, this sofwtare is great, the poroduct is cheap, there are no messy installers and I generally run this in conjunction with BART's PE boot disk. Drive snapshot is even built into that as a restore solution.

Hope that this helps.

If you take server imaging seriously steer away from Drive Snapshot and opt for a well established server imaging product such as Symantec Ghost or Acronis True Image.
