We had a total NTFS unrecoverable failure on a primary SBS2003 server. We have a recent tape backup containing c:\winnt c:\docs... c:\Program Files and System State.
The problem is the original server had sbs2003 installed to c:\winnt whereas the default and as far as I know unchangeable directory is c:\windows
This is a headache because we cannot restore system state to get Active Directory etc. working.
Has anyone come across this before? Can we forcibly change the install path for sbs2003??
Here is a really long way to fix this issue but I dont have any of the media and the server has been offline already 2days.
There must be an easier way to do this. Help much appreciated.
