I've been ghosting servers for years without issue, and you are the first
I've ever heard say it's a problem.

I would recommend against this approach - had a guy in my org who was fond
of doing this and we had to go back and reinstall the OS on most of his
servers due to various problems.  In my opinion it is a sloppy way of
provisioning an OS.  Use Ghost, Altiris or a scripted RIS/unattended install
for provisioning your servers.

I would use Ghost instead.

Subject: [THIN] Replicate server - break mirror

A while back a few people mentioned that they were replicating their Citrix
servers by breaking mirror sets and then simply moving one of the mirrored
drives to the new server. They also mentioned that they had a set of
procedures for doing this and were willing to share. I'm looking to adopt
this methodology as it seems to be the easiest and was hoping that someone
would be willing to share those procedures?
