How to Do Complete BackUp?

Hello Guys,

I have Red Hat System in which I have been working for the past 1 year.Now Due to scarcity of servers, I need to format that system but at the same time I want to do complete Backup of OS.I mean to say "I want to backup whole OS in form of ISO so that whenever I try to install that same OS it should be the same which I have been working ever since".
Is it possible?

If your system only uses Red Hat RPMS, you may want to construct your own kickstart file to install a server that suits you. Then you only need to backup the configuration files and your home directory.
