This might be possible with Clonezilla, a PXE server and some creative scripting. This link has some details, but is not exactly the process you are looking for. The key to good boot image creation is that it can't be live, it has to be static. openlogic.com/wazi/bid/188051/…

Restore consists of replacing bad disks, booting the G4L or Clonezille and restoring the image. Then you have to catch up on any updates made since then, but at that point you have a working system, with a working backup/restore client installed, such as NetBackup.

Connected storage can be USB or Ethernet. Image backup consists of a server shutdown, booting the G4L or Clonezilla USB or CD, identifying the source disks (or partitions) and identifying the destination (USB Drive or file server), and go. The learning curve is pretty short.

comment UPS with a HP Proliant server
They SHOULDN'T care. BTW THD on a square wave is pretty meaningless if the meter is expecting a sine wave, it could be a very clean square wave but the meter is trying to compare it to the sine and marking all deviance as distortion. If you truly have Harmonics, interharmonics, notching, RF noise, frequency variations, etc. in the 40% range, that would be an instant RMA on the UPS, it is defective.

The iso9660 option seems to detect most variations of optical disk images including DVD, not just CD or CD-*.

comment Why pay for UNIX?
No matter what your brand of O/S, if you don't have a patch management policy in place and enforced, and upgrade when obsolete, you have zero network security. BTW Nice link to a ca 1998/2000 article.
