Hi there :)
In this article http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=240363
Microsoft describes what to do if a Domain Controler brakes down, but is still functional enough to enter Directory Services Restore Mode to recover Active Directory, and so on, using NTBACKUP.
What if the server is stolen, burned, or otherwise damages, so Directory Services Restore Mode is impossible? If you have a fresh new server, what should you have backed up to restore the server in the same state as before. I know that System State is important, and Sysvol, and Exchange Information Store.
But I've triede to restore a backup on a new server. The data from the backup is transfered succesfully but it doesnt work at all, and the server acts wierd.
What a i doing wrong?
