I need to setup one machine to backup all others on my network. It will be grabbing approx. 500 GB of data across 12 machines. What is the best way to set this up? I have a GB network and all the machines stay on at night. I need to be able to restore a machine from complete failure and to another machine if necessary. Please advice.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This one machine would need;

1. Tape Backup with a single drive supporting LTO -4 (800 GB) or LTO-5 (1.5 TB) tape cartridges. Order required components for Tape Drive to work with your machine (e.g. SCSI controller, etc.)

2. Backup Software and agents.
3) Then perform a test backup and restore of a single machine.

    Are you asking what backup software you need to be using? You really don;t say what specifically you need assistance with. Will you be backing up to tape? Do you have a backup system in place or are you designing one from the ground up?
