Restore group policy and reouting and remote access policy!

Hi Experts

I have recently restored my 2000 Server domain controller using Veritas backup exec 8.6.

Most aspects seem to be working fine but I have lost my group policy and routing and remote access policy.

It isn’t that I have lost the configuration for these policy’s the problem is there is no group policy or routing and remote access policy. The snap in’s cannot find them and subsequently routing and remote access will not work at all and when I access the group policy page in AD Users and Computers the entire page is grayed out.

Does anybody have any idea where these are stored, what the files that make these up are or even how to restore them.

Thanks all help is appreciated.

the GPOs are stored in SYSVOL under Polices for your domain, the settings for RRAS are (I think) stored in the registry under the CurrentControlSet Services key for RRAS

Try looking there and seeing what you have restored.

Sorry, so far as I know all the RRAS Settings are stored in the registry.

These links may help, but they are all I could find and I do not have a Windows 2000 RRAS Server to hand to check further.

Welcome, thats all I could find.

I checked my own W2k3 RRAS Server and all the registry settings are held under several HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services keys:
RASacd
RASauto
RASl2tp
RASman
RASpppoe
RASpti
RemoteAccess

Thanks James

Checked the reg against my own Win2K machine and all appears to be in order!

The group policy issues was resolved by copying the files from another server.

I think the only way to get my RAS back online is to restore the system state again now i have the machine back and running!
