hi everybody !
in answer to question "how to back up files from a Windows 2003 Small
Business Server ?"
i would suggest, in addition to your solutions, to try bacula, from
http://www.bacula.org , which runs pretty on every system, with GUIs and web
interfaces, a great solution.
another would be FREENAS , an entire Linux OS dedicated to backups. from
it runs also on a virtual machine or obviously installed, and is great since
it integrates in Active Diretory, seamless RAID configuration, and rsync,
whose clients are available also for windows.
so, both solutions are good candidates to a backup machine, which acts as
NAS, and can inherit AD policies.
you can then automate (also by GUIs) your policies, but sure, a little
scripting can always help !!
bye and sorry for late posting, HTH however.
