taking windows 2000 server down and replacing it temporarily
Posted on 2004-04-27
I want to reformat our server at school. It has some bugs and its been running for 2 years now. I would like to take a computer that has the hard drive space but is windows 98 and take the travan backup tapes and restore to this computer so that I can take the server down and run this one on the network until I can get the server back up. Can I do this? Will it reformat the hard drive and replace the operating system too? I have nothing to lose with the windows 98 computer because I can just reformat it in the end. We can't go without a server and I predict that it will take approx. 2 weeks to redo active directory and our database.
