I have a drive going bad 2nd one in an array of 4 - I have to perform a drive check that may crash my array. - Anyway
This is on a 2000 Server - One of 3 domain controllers in a single domain.
I want to back it up and restore it in the easiest way. I have Veritas 8.6 and NTbackup, tapes and firewire drives. Can I just reinstall the OS and then restore the System State and all the files? Do I need to install in a different directory first? Do I need to put it in Directory Services Restore Mode? Or do I even need to install Active directory before I restore the system state...
Any help on the easiest path to getting this thing back together would be greatly appreciated.
