A business friend of mind would like another identical Server (Hardware) to be built so that it could restore a full installation of the original server, programs and all. I will be used to take place of the original server in case there was another hurricane here in New Orleans or a fire at his office. Also they don't have access to some of the customized software's recovery CDs anymore and will not be able to purchase new ones in the future. If those programs become corrupt they would cause major problems. They are running a daily backup of the entire C:/ and on a Windows 2003 Server that has a RAID 1. This is the only domain controller on a 40-user network. My question is this: How do you do a full system restore to another identical server? I need some good expertís advice. Do you first run the Windows 2003 Server disk on the new identical server without installing Active Directory and then do a restore, which would then install Active Directory, programs, and everything else onto the new one? Or could I break the mirror set in the original server and use just place one of them in the new server, I need some help not sure what to do or how to do it?
