    Using TI 8 Enterprise Server, I noticed that I can start multiple images of multiple remote servers at the same time. Is there any issue with this? Is there a maximum I can image at once? So far, they all seem to image and verify without issue. For example, instead of imaging one server at a time, I am currently imaging four servers at the same time. I use one primary server to pull the images from the servers. Thanks.

    Hi John,

    I've been imaging 24 servers at a time to my central storage server. the only issue I've run across so far is available bandwidth. I have 4 nics total, 2 each teamed on different subnets.. due to the strange browsing issue we talked about a while ago.

    I do Monday Fulls, with the rest being incrementals. the fulls take a while depending on the server, the worst going for 14 hours. The incrementals go much quicker.. 4-6 hours. My main user server backs up locally in about 10 hours with a full image file of +/- 200gigs. Once I get gigabit blade switches, I expect my network images to run much faster.

    The only drawback so far, minus my pending support issues is the fact that I have to copy out all the images to week 1,2,3,4,5 folders so that when the monday fulls run, they don't overwrite the previous weeks' image.

    Hello napoleon,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Enterprise Disk Backup Software.

    The quantity of images started at the same time is not limited, but the creation of an image from the remote servers depends on your network. We didn't face problems connected with creation of multiple images.

    Thank you.
