Greetings from Germany. Here's how we do disaster recovery backup.

We use a version of Norton Ghost 7.5 enterprise bootdisk with aspi driver and the internal Streamer. Boot the server from disk and then use ghost to duplicate the complete Disk (DOS-, NetWare-Partition) to the streamer. Ghost uses the cluster copy to duplicate the Disks to backup-streamer. If the disks crash, recreate the Raid and use the image from tape to restore the full server.
