davil Posted November 18, 2009 Share Posted November 18, 2009 Hi all, I'm back asking questions again. I'll keep this simple. We have a load of Windows Server 2003 installations here on HP Servers. Some fool setup the C drive partitions with only 10GB!!!!!! so as you can guess they're running out of space. My Plan is to re-partition on the fly using one of the following as we don't have time for a full reinstall (we're not allowed enough downtime by our managers): EASEUS Partition Master Server Edition http://www.partition-tool.com/ or Acronis Disk Director Suite http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/produ...rtitioning.html or similar But obviously I want to 'ghost' / take an image of the entire Drive just in case something goes horribly wrong (which it usually does) So I've been looking at a few different options for this: 1. Universal Network Bootdisk + the OLDer DOS based Ghost that we have (This is what we use for PCs but I have a feeling it won't work well on server 2003 with RAID) [not sure of version of ghost] http://netbootdisk.com/ 2. Acronis® Backup & Recovery™ 10 Advanced Server - doesn't work over the network http://www.acronis.com/backup-recovery/advanced-server/ We have no external drives so we'd have to store the image of the drive somewhere on the network (so I think #2 is out) There's probably a linux way to do this but I'm not great with linux command line stuff. maybe there's a live CD I can download which is already setup to do this?? So I'm wondering what's the easiest / most efficient way to do this job ? Any help would be much appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
