Urgent system state question.
Posted on 2002-07-02
Can I take a backup of the system state on an AD domain controller, replace the HDD, reinstall 2000 Server and do an authorative restore using the backed up system state data.
My problem is I have a single domain controller with a failing hard disk holding the system and boot files and need to replace it without losing the user information. ie. permissions, groups etc.
Any other solutions welcome. I have already tried ghosting the partition / disk, mirroring the drive but in both situations comes up with a disk I/O error.
