  • Ghost image of Exchange 2003 possible?

    Hello,

    I would like to know if it is possible to make a ghost image of an exchange server. The reason to do that is that I don't have enought space left on my HDD and I would like to move my exchange server on a bigger one. I was thinking that maybe by making a ghost image it may work but I am not sure about it. For your information there is only exchange installed on that server nothing else (not DC or whatever).

    Thank you

    I've never done it personally but you could try it and see. I have imaged normal productions servers prior to installing a larger drive and never had any problems.

        we've done this once without any problem... but test is carefully before braking the raid set.

        for example. Ghost it, and restore it to an vmware session. If everything works fine, then expand the raid set.

        just be very carefull.

          I do it:

          I had a 40 gb Hdd, 1 partition C (10 gb) an 1 partition D (30 gb)
          Put a slave 80 gb Hdd and ghost the 40 gb into 80 gb
          Resize the C and D partitions with Ghost ( C -> 20 and D -> 60)
          Take off 40 HDD, put the 80 Hdd like Master, turn On the PC, and WORK!!!

          By, and look
