So i have a broken Win2003 server which is the DNS and AD server.
so I decided to come alive the backup server. But i have reason to assume there are bugs in the registry too.
So even if i have daily "system state" backup I dont wannt to use it as it restores all the registry.
So Im extremley curious how can i backup and restore only and just only the Acitve Directory relevant informations as it seems to me if i restore the so called "system state" backup it restores the whole registry ... (as after a system state restore it came back all the installed program list from the previous server - even if they were not installed on the new one ...)

Read over this and let me know if you have any questions.  And of course make a full backup of your server before doing *anything* listed here.  If you have a utility like Acronis True Image or Symantec Ghost make an image of the server before you do this.
