How to Restore Win2k3 Domain Controller to different hardware for Disaster Recovery scenario
Posted on 2009-04-21
My client is struggling with the process to restore a Windows 2003 R2 Domain Controller to new hardware - for disaster recovery scenario.
This domain controller is also an Exchange 2003 server.
So, it's like a small business server restore.
Symantec 12d (from tape) and Symantec LiveState Recovery server (images) are being used for the restore
The problem is that after the restore:
1. Cannot add objects to the Active Directory - but can change properties on existing objects
2. Exchange 2003 System Attendent and Information Store does not start automatically.
Please advise if you have recovery steps or have resolutions for these issues.
Thanks very much,
