clone raid disk information on a SmartArray

Hello
I wanted to know if someone could tell me a software to clone partitions on a ML 350 with a SMART ARRAY 642, to make a backup before a big change i have to make on the system.
I have tried the Norton Ghost 8.0, 9.0. and none recognized the smartarray card.
Maybe is something i am doing it wrong, but i don´t see it.
Thanks for any help you can give me.

Re: clone raid disk information on a SmartArray

Hi Arias,
I have successfully cloned the array using Norton Ghost 2003. But the controller was Adaptes 2120S. I have tried the same on mylex 4si also. Done successfully.

Have you tried to clone the whole disk or tried partitions.?? Whole disk approach can copy the data effectively..
