Want to clone Windows Server 2003 to larger hard drive
I work in a 24/7 operation which uses a single server running Windows 2003 server for our database. The server has an 80GB hard drive which is currently 3/4 full. I have purchased two 1TB hard drives that I would like to migrate everything on to (everything including the OS and data).
I have a copy of the DEFT distribution with FTK Imager.
Can I do the following and get it to work:
1) while the server is still running, run the DEFT CD and get a live acquisition dd.
2) boot DEFT on another system and image the dd to one of the new hard drives.
3) take down the server and swap in the new hard drive with the image and boot the server back up as normal
If there is another distribution that can do a better/faster live acquisition, please let me know.
