    Hello,

    I have a small question I hope someone can help me with, I have a Windows 2003 server which is on its last legs, over the next week I will be replacing it with a new 64-bit server and installing Server 2003 64-bit version as we are moving to exchange 2007. I do not want to have both servers on at the same time as this will cause problems with some 3rd party apps as my server has to have the the imaginative name of SERVER for these to work :)

    I was thinking if I use NTBackup to backup the system state and restore this on the new server it should work, has anyone tried this before? are there any pitfalls? do I need to do anything else?

    Any help very much appreciated :)
