    Posted: June 25 2007 at 8:32am

Is there any way to backup the application itself and then restore it to a different machine?  The new equipment may or  may not have the same type of hardware but the operating system will be the same.  If isolating the application alone is problematic can I back up the entire application with all the related files and databases?  The end result is that in the event that the server becomes inoperable then the backup of the application can be restored onto a different machine without having to do a reinstallation

There is no way to backup and restore the GP application itself, only the databases.  You will need to reinstaall GP on the new machine.

You should look at creating a .MSI file (compile your installation) for GP (Reasd your documentation on how to do this).

When you experience a crash, you can simply deploy the ap to a new machine by running the msi install.

If yu are not doing so already, you must look at this as a preferred method for deploying client machines and for keeping them up to date with yur latest version.
Have fun!
