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
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..
