Hi Amit, 

Well first you'll need to buy Symantec Ghost Corporate Edition so you have the 
32 bit version. Then if you have a server such as a HP Proliant DL-580 with a 
6400 Smart Raid Controller you'll need to add the Raid controller driver to 
your bootable CD Rom that you'll have to create so it can access the Raid Disk 

If you Want to create your own Bootable CD, I would recommend you use Microsoft 
WinPE or Bart's PE http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/.

Barts also allows you to use Acronis http://www.acronis.com/ which may be less 
expensive then Ghost Corporate, however I have only used Ghost Version 8, 32Bit 
and can attest that it works ( I've imaged several hundredservers with it at 
ADP Payroll Systems ).

Hope this helps, the rest is up to you and requires that you read the 
documentation with each product.

Best Wish's, 

Jose Medeiros

  Please help me and guide me how can I take the ghost backup of the servers 
and how do I test restore of the ghost image.
