After a restore of a Windows 2000 server, we found out that the Documents and Settings folder had not been backed up. None of the administrator profiles or "all users" folders could be restored. However, on first boot of the server these items were created with default shortcuts.
Is there a way to create or locate shortcuts (other than creating various MMC Snap-ins), for Active Directory, Domain Controller Policy, etc., that are normally created when upgrading the controller? The server has already been restored via tape to DC status but lacks the shortcuts typical of a DC.
