hello all

I created a domain which is crashed due to hardware failer

solution which i set for this
1 raid 1
2 system state backup
3 spare an identical machine

i sucsessfuly restore 2nd hardisk put n spare machine

now my system is ready

but due to a lot of events erros i decide to recreate my domain AD  

and i reinstall Ad and do a donkey work to recreate user and groups

and re add domain in all client ( which losses my users profiles)

now for future planing i am trying to create replication server

which is sucessfuly installed and replicate all AD information

now i am worry to "HOW TO RELICATE ALL SHARE FOLDERS AND USER'S DATA  AND SECURITY PERMISIONS AS WELL AS ?"

ONE MORE THING I INSTALL NORMAL SERVER AND RESTORE SYSTEM STATE
WHICH IS GIVE ME ALL THING BUT WHEN I USE ACTIVE DIRECTORY USERS AND COMPUTER SNAP MEMORY DUMP IS COME.


SO WHAT SHOULD I DO
 
RAID 1
OR
RELICATE SERVER (IF IT ALSO REPLICATE SAID THINGS)
OR
RELAY ON SYSTEM STATE BACKUP

I would have said go with the RAID 1 route, but you said you've recreated AD?
Can you provide some more detail on where you're at, as it's unclear to me at this point...

Moveuser (http://www.ss64.com/nt/moveuser.html) and Robocopy (http://www.ss64.com/nt/robocopyXP.html) should help with replicating your user's data...

You definitly should use raid AND (offline) backups for every server that does more than just heating the air. This way you have a second copy of your data and in case of a harddisk failure your server still works. Maybe you should also think of a redundant power supply and don't forget the fans.
If you still want more than one server you can replicate with DFS (distributed file system). But this does not give you the freedom to just kill one of the servers. At least one server in AD has the 5 holy roles. If this server is gone, you will run into trouble.
Another solution is to build a cluster. How much do you want to spend today?

It all depends on your needs...
