How can I create a Ghost Image of the Host Server for Ghost Suite

Created: 18 Jun 2010 | 2 comments

I am in the process of getting ready to virtualize our server that host ghost suite.  Is it possible to create an image of this server since this is where the suite resides?  And if it is possible how can I complete this task of creating a ghost image of this server?  The server is windows 2003 standard sp2 x64.

LOCAL BOOT

Steps:
1.Using the ghost boot wizard ,Create a boot disk .
2. Locally boot the ghost server using the boot disk
3. In the Ghost menu, Select Local->Disk ->To Image  option
4. Properly select the source disk and destination.

Dilip is absolutely correct; a boot disk is necessary. The Ghost Console machine is never a client of itself, and therefore cannot automate tasks to itself. What Dilip recommended is the only way to do this.

Thank you,
