System State Restore Steps (Authoritative) to a Single DC Domain
Posted on 2007-04-17
I have a small client whose single DC had an untimely death yesterday. Fortunately I recently P2V-ed the server, and I was successfully able to boot the virtual machine without issues. I have a successful system state backup from the previous night (NTBackup BKF file), which I want to restore authoritatively to the VM version of the DC.
Does anyone know what steps I should go through to successfully authoritatively restore the system state to a DC using NTBackup?
I have booted into Directory Services Restore Mode, catalogued the BKF file in NTBackup, and restored the system state to it's original location, but it's the NTDSutil commands I am unsure of...
