We imaged our BlackBerry Server and then dropped the image on our spare server to see if the server imaged correctly.  The image seems to be ok, all services and software are properly installed, the server is part of the domain and able to connect to network files.

My problem is I can't unjoin the imaged server from the domain.  I get the following error: The revision level is unknown.

I've done some research about it on the web and tried serveral options.  Logged on Local Admin, uninstall/reinstall MS Network, I've checked the registry securty setting under HKLM but there is nothing under the security folder, i've removed the server from AD.  I'm at a loss as what to do.  I can unjoin the production server and rejoin it just fine.  I'm using Symantec LiveState Recovery Advanced Server to take the image and this is a Windows Server 2003.

Any suggestions or help is appreciated
