    Anyone here using windows small business server 2000?

    I have been using it for a while, doing regular tape backups etc. however, I need to make a bare metal install backup and or a full redundant machine.

    I have a one IDE drive partitioned to 3 drives.... Win, Apps, Data

    The win and Apps folder run SBS...

    Anyway, can I run a second SBS 2000? Make it part of the forest?

    should I just ghost the drive as it is only 60 Gigs anyways? Will that allow me to just replace the current drive if there was a problem?

    I have an old Dual PIII 2 GIG Ram server sitting around without any HD's if I put some in there what is my best best for full redundancy on SBS (Use Exchange and OS only)

    I ghost my c drive which as the OS and apps on it (I used to have a separate partition for apps but it seemed kind of pointless since you have to reinstall apps after you wipe your OS partition). And I would use a tape backup of your data. For a server, your OS and apps shouldn't take that much space.
