I took over a new IT infrastructure after a disaster on server.
The sole Win2003 Server has crashed without backup.
I then re-installed the OS and AD.
Now I have a copy of ntds.dit from before disaster and I would like to restore all AD objects to the newly installed win2003 server AD with SID intact.
Is there anyway to import all AD objects from ntds.dit to newly installed win2003 server AD with all the SID of objects unchanged?
I don't have the local administrator password on all 30 client computers thus I would like to restore the AD objects else I can't re-join those computers to the newly installed AD domain.
Thanks for your help.
