I am trying to prepare for the day when my Windows 2000 server which is my domain controller fails. I have an identical hardware box that I installed a copy of W2K Server on. I then did a backup of the main server and restored it to the backup server. When I started it up I got a prompt to restart in Directory Services Repiar Mode. I rebooted and pressed F8 and got into that mode. I then went to a command prompt and typed ntdsutil and did authoritative restore and resotre database. The database restored and the server came up and looks fine. Here is my question?
The C drive in this server is the OS only and the domain database. If I don't change any users or rights ect how often would I have to do this restore process to keep the backup server current? Or can I just set it in a corner now and feel confident that I am prepared?
I'm not sure, since I don't know exactly how you installed your backup server.
