+1 for proper server kit that tells you things like that. One more reason I facepalm when people say "Can't we just run this on an XP machine and save some money?"

comment What is a good NAS for remote server backups?
Very true about just wanting 24h support. I rarely suggest that anyone roll their own hardware in a business environment, but had some intuition that it might be more appropriate in this scenario. LaCie also makes rackmount NAS devices. No idea on their quality though.

Thanks for the clarification. Have you tried mapping the network share to a lettered drive on the SBS 2003 machine? That will probably work. I think that limitation might be imposed by SBS 2003 rather than NTBackup itself. Yes, NTBackup, while okay in a bare-bones operation, does leave a few things to be desired.

In my opinion, integrated server controllers are just as poor and should be avoided when possible. ::casts contemptuous glance at an HP ML115::

concerning your statement: "Normally you wouldn't need any drivers" Unless I'm misunderstanding something, you need drivers to access the RAID controller itself to be able to see the volume that it creates from multiple drives. Thus when installing a new server OS you usually need some kind of disk with the RAID controller's drivers on it for the installation to proceed because in many cases it won't even see a hard drive unless it has some compatible RAID controller drivers already in the installation files.
