PartImage and Domain Controllers

Post by Blade1 » Mon Jun 13, 2011 10:33 pm


I am using a cloud hosting provider, which uses Partimage (your product) to take an image of the physical server when the instance is destroyed and likewise write the image to a physical server when a server is provisioned.

However, Domain Controllers are very sensitive to imaging software (I assume when people say this they mean the type of imaging software which runs inside the OS. I made a thread asking about this see below). That type of imaging software is not "AD aware" and from reading about PartImage, it shows no sign of being "AD Aware" - or does it need to be if it is executed from a linux kernel and not from within Windows?

In short, does PartImage break domain controllers (specifically, I use a mix of Windows Server 2008 R2 Server Core and Full versoons as Domain Controllers)?
