i've managed to delete the SBSUsers container with the all the User Accounts in it.  Is there an easy way to recover the container and all the user accounts, groups, etc., or will I needed to restore each individually?

    Directory Restore Mode with your most recent System State Backup.

    When booting, press F8 to get the boot options and select Directory Restore Mode... it'll guide you from there.

    While I do have a recent backup, I've ran into a roadblock with Backup Exec.  When in DRM the MSSQLSERVER service won't start; get a 1068 error.  Without the MSSQLSERVER service the Backup Exec services won't start due to dependencies.

    I'm not a Backup Exec user... so I can't give you much more advice on that subject.

    Try reinstalling your Backup Exec software that will take care of your MSSQLSERVER issues.  Once you got that going you can insert the backup tape and catalog the information on the tape and then follow the document that Jeff posted above.
