Rebuildling a Windows 2000 Small Business Server, (Back Office)
Posted on 2005-04-15
My Windows 2000 Small Business Server, (Back Office), is toast. a trojan ate wholes in my Operating System.
It has Active Directory and Exchange 2000 on it.
I also recently setup a Windows 2003 member server and connected it to my domain.
So I want to blow away my Windows 2000 server, restore from CD and restore my data.
My considerations are getting email restored properly, setting this server back up again
correctly and restoring my data.
We only have 10 users so I can blow everything away and recreate my users, if need be.
Restoring email, not sure about how to make that happen after a clean install.
Am wondering if I should take the Windows 2003 Member server out of the domain, put it in
a temporary workgroup while I rebuild my 2000 server.
Have not had to rebuild before and restore data.
