HI ,
I have installed exchange server 2007 and its working helthy. Now I want to make a mirror image of the exchange server and put it on the spare server for emergency purpose.
Kindly explain me how to do that.

Why do you want to mirror it? simply take a full backup of the database and transaction log files on a tape or a HDD.
Backup system state for OS.

tks for quick reply.
I am not expert with exchange I want Backup server of the existing server and Ill need keep it offline. If something wrong with existing server I can online this backup server.  Kindly let me know which setting should be configuring with new backup server.
If you have better option pls let me know.

I would recommend you to use ntbackup as this is the inbuilt feature under windows server 2003.
Simply open this program and add your information stores and system files onto it. Save it on external HDD or any other storage device .This would be enough .
What exchange server and what kind of setup you have by the way?
