    Hi there

    I'm after some advice. I'm an engineer / reseller. I sell mainly to small business with up to 50 users. Most of them buy SBS2003 and some other have server and exchange 2003. I've always used VERITAS backup exec for backup onto various tape based media. For general data it's always been fine. Over the past 10 years I’ve only ever had 2 total failures....and both times the active directory / exchange has not been able to restore.

    A customer of mine today had a RAID failure, for a while it looked grim but I managed to get it all alive again. As I was fixing it I realised I had ZERO confidence in the previous night’s full backup. This made me start to worry and now I’m looking for something that I want to be able to state my life on working.

    So my question to all the users out there is this...is Enterprise Server as good as it says on the tin? My plan is to buy it and install it on a spare machine on their networks, should their server fail then I’ll have a machine that can be restored onto instantly and quickly.

    Any help or pointers greatly appreciated.

    Does not sound like you have thoroughly thought this through. What server are you using? How much user data will be lost?

    If I understand you right you would like to restore the system the a different computer (which usually means different hardware) in case the original fails.
