We have two terminal servers, both running the exact same hardware config and software.  One died.  Can I backup from the other one and restore it to the one that died once we get the dead server in an operational state???  We use Backup Exec

    It really all depends on what your backing up with BE.  If your doing system state as well as all of the folders it should work however you will need to change the computer name just to make sure you dont get a conflict.

    That's what I was thinking as well.  Sort of like installing from an image.  Do you think I should disjoin and rejoin to the domain so there are no duplicate program IDs (sorry, forget the terminology...)

    Personally if it was me i would definitely do that.  We had to do a restore once of a exchange server and we actually just pulled the network cord just to make sure.
