Hi all,

I have installed redhat in my pc with scsi harddisk. I'd like to make an image like ide harddisk for restoration.

What method or software can do that?

I tried Ghost and it does not work. (can't detect my scsi hard drive).

Did anyone try Acronis? Any guide for that?

Thank you

Hi,

Sorry for not seeing that you are running RedHat when I read it the first time.

If you are willing to try an opensource option I have found a few options for you. Clone your Ubuntu installation onto a new hard disk, Clonezilla, and Partimage. Partimage is the opensource alternative to Norton Ghost.

If you still want to try acronis, I can try and find a guide for it and linux.

Cheers!

Question

I was trying to CLONE the Windows Server 2003 Wide SCSI hard disk to a another Wide SCSI for exact backup!!!

I bought the same SCSI drive and failed to format/install on that new drive from Windows Server 2003 installation CD; however, I was able to delete old partitions from the new drive. Unfortunately, my computer was not able to recognize that new drive.

OS: Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition
CPU Intel Xeon 3.06 GHz
Adaptec SCSI BIOS v4.30S2
Two Drives are: ATLAS10K4_36WLS
I was trying Acronis Backup recover Workstation & Server v10

Any luck in pointing me to the right direction?

P.S: If I unplug that new SCSI drive, I have not problem rebooting and starting the 2003 server...

Hi,

This thread is pretty old, as such I am closing it. Also, please notice that his is the linux section of the forum so Windows OS's don't help us here.
