Is there a way to create a identical backup sql server for existing sql server 2005.

We would like to keep the same name also.

The new server will have exact configuration as current.
- All the Email setting
- All the Jobs
- All special settings

You can't have the same name on the network because of Windows restrictions.

If you want to set up a DR type server you can bring online, then you should restore all backups, including master, and have it on a separate (or off the) network. Then before bringing it online, restore the latest backups.

Why do you want to do so?

you cant do as steve said it is windows restriction but you can set a Disater recovery server using mirroring , Log shipping, Replication for that you need exactly the similar server like same drive configuration etc.

Application also supports DR's..

We are not going to put it on the same network.
This will be our DR server, just in case.

Is there a way to create a identical server ?

Restore. That's how you create an identical server. It's also how you practice DR.
