We are in the process of having to rebuild Windows 2003 Server, SBE... and we do not have the ability to get an image right now on a degraded Hard Drive...so we will have to build from Scratch. We are able to get the System State Backed with (with NTBackup) and our Exchange Store.
Here's the question, if we backup System State and take this backup to our new server, (diff Hardware) when we try to recover the system state from backup we get errors.
Are there steps that should be taken on a different piece of hardware? What are those steps... and what would be the best way to recover the system state on another piece of hardware.
Thanks for the help... The Operating system is Win 2003 SBE on both machines .... We need to recover as much as possible, we figure the System State and Exchange Store are the most critical.
