Hi There,

Last night my server the  crashed and i found that the harddrives have both failed.  I purchased new drives rebuild windows 2003 sbs and reloaded backup exec 9.  I did not make my server a domain controller yet as i was reading up and people were saying you don't need to do that
So i then booted the server in domain directory services mode and went into backup exec and restored the system state from my tape backup.  It prompted me that i had to reboot to make the changes take effect.  I rebooted and now the windows sbs screen comes up and it just gets to preparing network connections and then after about 2 to 3 min the server just reboots and it does that again and again.  What am i missing here?  How to i get windows to load back into windows with my domain all intact so i don't have to load each pc back on the domain one by one and don't have to recreate new profiles on the clients pcs because it things its a new domain.
