I am trying to test my backup of my domain controller.
How do I restore to a new server, both are Windows Server 2003, using Backup Exec 12. I have my System State data backed up but need step by step inst. on how to proceed.My new server is partitioned like the old server and the computer name is identical to the old machine. I have not installed active directory.

Where do I go from here. If you have done this process before please respond. Thanks so much

See Symantec's Disaster Recovery Shortcut list at http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/261700.htm.

You'll find step-by-step procedures for every scenario. Search for "Disaster recovery of a local Windows 2000 computer (includes non-authoritative restore of Active Directory for a domain controller)" if the tape drive is attached to the DC you're restoring or search for "Disaster Recovery of a remote Windows 2000 computer (includes non-authoritative restore of Active Directory for a domain controller)" is you're restoring over the network.

Hmmm...  That's exactly what I explained in the second paragraph.

Let me make it easier: local tape drive: http://support.veritas.com/docs/236240
