  • Server Backup

    Hi Guys,

    I have one development server(server1) and buy another development server(server2) so i want to take full windows backup with IIS settings so please tell me how do i do that.

    My plan is just install windows in second server (server2) and restore the full windows backup from the server1 on this server2 so this will same like as server1.

    Please guide me which software is best.

    Re: Server Backup

    What server OS is this?

    You can do it all with NTBackup (similar hardware makes it easier), alternatively products like BackupExec allow you do do a "bare metal restore" to dissimilar platforms

      I have Windows 2003 Enterprise Server.

      Is Ntbackup will restore all windows files, iis settings, registry etc?

        System state will take care of registry, AD etc
        Backing up your IIS drive (probably C) should handle all the settings there, but IIRC there is a command that explicitly backs up the IIS metabase

          You can backup the metabase for your websites in IIS directly from the IIS snapin. Right click on the root and go to all tasks.
          The location is usually %windows%\system32\inetsrv. If you are also backing up the contents of this directory then this will suffice for a restore along with system state data etc.
